The correspondence over the last couple of days regarding Kniphofia reminded me that I have been meaning to ask whether anyone on this forum has experience of plant hunting in Mozambique? I will be there for two weeks in the second half of January, visiting a friend. We will be spending a lot of time on the coast north of Maputo but there should also be time to spend a few days in the highlands in the north west of the country. I imagine that there might be interesting species of Kniphofia, Gladiolus, Eucomis, Crocosmia, Dierama and others growing there. I'd be hugely grateful for any tips on where to go to look for these plants - time will be very short. Falling as it does between the well-studied floras of South Africa and tropical east Africa, I'm not sure how much has been written about it. Can anyone recommend anything that might serve as any kind of field guide? I'm aware of the online flora of mozambique, but this is very much a work in progress. Feel free to respond on this forum or to write to me directly if you can help.
