Succulents of Southern Africa


Succulents of Southern Africa, is the most extensive photographic publication of general succulent plants of this region yet produced. Nothing else is available currently to the extent, lavish style and user-friendliness of this work.

It has been made both possible and important due to the efforts of many photographers who, over the years, have accumulated the beautiful identifying photographs and have kindly permitted their use, to make this work remarkable and valuable.

Every species recorded is beautifully illustrated in full colour, with one or more photographs. The illustrations are always on the same spread as their relevant text. This feature makes the book extremely user-friendly. The text includes a description of the plant and its distribution.

There are over 2500 of the best available colour photographs in all, doing justice to this fascinating group of plants.

Succulents of Southern Africa is a valuable addition for all who are interested in succulent plants as well as for botanical faculties, libraries, universities and for the serious book collector.

The introduction includes an extensive section on cultivation. A full-colour map of the sub-region is included as well as a map of the Western Cape region extending into Namibia, the home of most of the succulent species of the region.

Succulents of Southern Africa is now available and priced at ZAR R950 plus postage.

Booksellers may contact us at to order the book at the special wholesale price.

No expense has been spared in the production of the book and one of the world’s top printers in Singapore was tasked with its production.
