Plant description:

One of Southern Africa’s most attractive indigenous trees, and one of the finest trees coming into leaf in spring, when it produces magnificent pale green foliage. It is a fairly rapid grower that casts dense shade, and is semi-hardy to frost. Many white stinkwood trees in the Pretoria area have a virus that gives the leaves a yellow margin or tips. This tree attracts birds and insects to the garden.
