Wild Flowers

The term "wild flowers", as used here, excludes trees, grasses, sedges and ferns but includes a diverse range of forbs and shrubs that bear flowers. The several hundred species listed below are but a fraction of the 1000+ species recorded in the Waterberg but these are the ones thus far photographed in the Waterberg. As can be seen, relatively few of them carry English or Afrikaans names; scientific names follow those listed in Strelitzia 14 (2003) except where updates are known.

Species are listed below alphabetically and Waterberg target species (rare, red-listed and/or endemic) are highlighted inred.

For a quick overview of the species that have Blue Green Mauve Orange Pink Red White or  Yellow flowers you can see a composite of each by clicking on the required colour.
