Plant description:

With its distinctive, smooth lime to yellow-green branches and stem, the fever tree is common in the Kruger National Park and Limpopo Valley. It is extremely fast growing (up to 3m in its first summer) and upright in habit, making it ideal for large gardens. This Acacia also forms a roundish spreading crown of feathery foliage and tolerates both poor soil and swampy conditions. It bears sweetly scented round balls of yellow- golden flowers in spring. Its paired thorns are strait and long. Older more mature trees allow the bark to peel off in thick pieces.
