Abstract
Interest in the flowering shrubs and plants found wild in the bush and in the open grasslands is now greatly on the increase'. Many gardens give special space for them or introduce them into mixed shrubberies or herbaceous borders, where they get the cultural attention they deserve. There are still people, however, who almost despise anything which they realize is indigenous; who will go so far as to admire some plant unknown to them, and, on being told that it is indigenous, immediately lose all interest. This attitude of mind is difficult to understand, but may possibly be explained by two facts.
