Astonishing Plant Life and Where to Find It
South Africa boasts a world of plants that are just as useful as they are beautiful.
They range from the fine grasses of the Free State Province and scrubby bushes of the Karoo Region to the dense greenery of the Garden Route forests and the mountain plains of the country's inland.
South Africa is home to more than 22,000 indigenous plants and is also home to 10% of the world's flowering species.
Many of these plants are not only beautiful to admire, but they also play an essential role in the country's ecosystem and in producing natural medicines and remedies.
