The history, karyology, leaf anatomy and anatomy of the shoot and embryo are discussed briefly. A key based on floral and vegetative characters is provided and a detailed description of the genus and of each species and variety is given. The nomenclature and synonomy for each taxon is included as well as brief notes on the distribution and habitat. Specimens deposited in the National Herbarium, Pretoria, and several other South African Institutions are cited in full.
