Please help to I.D these two plants.

I have taken this photo near Delmas as well as a photo of the same plant at Marekele. There is a vast differance in climate between Delmas (cold) and Marekele (worm)

Can this be some sort of Orchid ?

Hi Pieter

The top one I know but cannot remember the name but it is in the pea family. Don't have my wild flower book nearby.

The second is a leeubekkie/snapdragon Lobelia species I think.

Hi Pieter;

Your first one look like a Tephrosia... looking at the photo i can unfortunately not say for sure which one.
It can be T. longipes, T. marginella or maybe T. elongata :?

The 2nd one looks like Nemesia fruticans - Mauve nemesia (Eng), Wilde Leeubekkie (Afr.)

Thank you Senyetse and jakkalsbessie.

Witch book do you use?

I have "A Photographic Guide to Wild Flowers Of Southern Africa by Braam Van Wyk"

It does not have all the flowers in.

Can you suggest any books?

Regards

Pieter
