    Say hello to South Africa’s National Tree! This beautiful tree is often considered as a hedging or screening option to create more privacy due to its dense foliage. It has a good coastal tolerance and is very slow growing (about 0.3m per year), so its best to buy them big if you don’t want to wait. Alternatively, they can also be planted in pots both indoors and outdoors, making them very versatile trees. They are Protected species in South Africa and generally reach heights of 8 metres when given the space to grow.
