Safely back home, it is now time to assess the expedition and write up the reports. A first analysis of the results makes very pleasing reading. Of the 52 taxa recorded for the Flora of Southern Africa (48 species and 4 subspecies or varieties) I managed to see 23 in flower and another 8 in the wild but not flowering. Considering that a large number of those that I missed were either never on my route or not flowering at the time I visited, I probably saw about 90% of the ones that I could have seen. My biggest regret is not finding K. brachystachya, as I was thwarted in the two places that I was likely to have seen it: Bushman's Nek and Highmoor. But I had many finds that I had not been hopeful of seeing at all such as K. evansii and K. splendida.
So here is a collection of all the ones I saw in flower. I hope it gives a taste for the variety of the species present in the wild. (Click on a photo to link through to the day where I spotted the species if you want to read more about where it was found.)
For completeness, the remaining non-flowering species that I saw were: K. fluviatilis, K. multiflora, K. northiae, K. pauciflora, K. praecox, K. rigidifolia, K. splendida, and K. triangularis subsp. obtusiloba.
