About this item

Southern Africa has at least 2,000 alien tree species being cultivated in the region. Such nonnative trees are predominantly associated with home gardens, parks and open spaces, and form a familiar part of our urban landscape. This guide features more than 580 of these species, logically arranged into 43 groups based on easy-to-observe leaf and stem features.

Each species account includes: full-color photographs of the plant’s diagnostic parts; concise text describing key identification features, flowering time, duration, drought hardiness and practical uses of the plants; and maps showing cold tolerance for each plant. This handy guide should prove fascinating to all plant enthusiasts.
