“T.P. Stokoe, the man, the myths, the flowers” is a celebration of an extraordinary life. Thomas Pearson Stokoe lived from 1868 to 1959. An incredible man, he climbed mountains until the age of 91 and discovered nearly 150 plants unknown to science. Nearly forty prominent Cape biologists have contributed their expertise and enthusiasm to enrich this tale of TP Stokoe and his passion for flowers.
