No problem Stephen, the exotic and native flora of the Canaries is one of my interests, will be heading there myself again in few weeks. The island of La Palma is perhaps the best one to see native Canarian flora but they all have much to offer in terms of interesting plants.There is an illustrated flora (in german)Die Kosmos Kanarenflora which has good illustrations of native and some exotic species.
