The Amaryllidaceae family is mainly distributed in warm temperate and tropical parts of the world and has approximately 75 genera and 1,600 species. This field guide follows hot on the heels of The Amaryllidaceae of Southern Africa (published in 2016), and the addition of 560 photographs and several new paintings in this field guide makes for an even more effective guide for identification in the field.

Author Graham Duncan provides a botanical description for each species, along with synonyms, brief history, flowering period, similar species, life cycle, distribution, habitat, medicinal/poisonous properties, pollination, cultivation, and conservation status. Maps accompany the text, along with colour photographs and botanical paintings.

This superb field guide will be treasured for years to come.

Graham Duncan is Curator of the Bulbous Plants Living Collection and a specialist horticulturist at the South African National Biodiversity Institute, Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. He is the author of many popular articles, taxonomic papers and books, including The Genus Lachenalia (Kew Publishing, 2012) and The Amaryllidaceae of Southern Africa (Umdaus Press, 2016). (He has described over 40 plant taxa, is a regular contributor to Curtis’s Botanical Magazine, and a recipient of the International Bulb Society’s Herbert Medal, awarded in 2001.

Barbara Jeppe was one of South Africa’s foremost botanical illustrators, whose books include Aloes; Natal Wild-flowers; South Africa is my Garden; Spring and Winter Flowering Bulbs of the Cape. She was a meticulous and keen observer and single-minded in her research, with a broad knowledge of all aspects of ecology and geology, which gave her the ability to predict where a particular species would be likely to grow.

Leigh Voigt has illustrated many books, and has held over fifteen solo exhibitions and participated in many group shows, both in South Africa and internationally. After her mother’s death in 1999 she took on the painting of the Amaryllidaceae, resulting in the publication of The Amaryllidaceae of Southern Africa (Umdaus Press, 2016).
