Bloom Where You’re Planted – South Africa Flowers

I was quite surprised when I learned South Africa boasted her own floral kingdom. Honestly, I thought to myself, “just because Darwin stopped off for a while on his trip around the world isn’t reason enough for a place to have its own floral kingdom. Especially when one considers there are only six such kingdoms world wide.
But in my time here, I’ve seen why such a high honor is deserved by this place. Below are a select few reasons why I’ve changed my mind.
