Welcome! to ATP LadyL.

Sorry, but those plants are unfamiliar to me, so I have no helpful information to share. Perhaps one or more of our dedicated sleuthing members can assist with some search sites that you could try. (The @ sign in front of their names will bring this question to their attention.)

Welcome!

PlantZAfrica might help, it has detailed descriptions but you might not find all the species.

Sorry, I see you have searched PlantZAfrica.

Cameron & Rhoda McMaster's site might help, or you could try contacting them as they might know someone who can help.

The Free State Botanical Gardens, located in Bloemfontein, would be a great place to contact.

According to the ATP members map we have a few three other members who live in South Africa.
How about a shout out to them to see if they can give you some help with the indigenous South African plants.

@cathyweid
@riette
@Elsa123

The following two members show up on the map as being in South Africa, but...
@conifers Nope, she's in Iowa.
@gardenersdetective Nope, zone 5 somewhere in the US?
