This page outlines the Zulu names of plants and their uses in alphabetic order (A-to-Z).

Zulu nouns consists of two parts, namely, the prefix and stem (or root).  The prefix occurs in two forms, the complete form (which includes an initial vowel) and the simple form (which contains no vowels). The stem gives the word its meaning. As a consequence, there are more plant names starting with vowels, than consonants.
