Volksmond Naam

Hi Spriggers

I have several plant images that I need help identifying in terms of a ‘volksmond naam’ (folk nomenclature) and, most importantly, a brief ‘story’ to go with it.

These names are more regional and do not have to be commonly known. Medicinal or common names will also do. I am researching my source material from a cultural rather than botanical perspective; linking the indigenous people of S.A. to the plants.

If anyone knows the plants medicinal/traditional uses, for example, it is would also be important that I know *who* (ethnic groups etc.) used them.

Many thanks, Claudia
