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.
