"Creative Gardening with Indigenous Plants is an invaluable handbook for South African gardeners. In this comprehensive guide, well-known gardening author Pitta Joffe sets out to popularise the use of indigenous South African plants in gardens, parks, on roadsides and anywhere where previously exotic plants were preferred. Taking a very practical approach, using symbols, distribution maps, plant size and flower colour, she leads the reader to the correct plant to choose for the application, whether this be tree, shrub, annual, perennial, climber of water-loving plant. The material is presented in an easy-to-find manner, making it simple to select a suitable plant for any given situation. Trees and shrubs are grouped according to size and shape, and where colour is the primary consideration, plants are arranged according to flower colour.".
