Autumn / Winter
Protected tree in the Northern Cape, Free State and the North West province.
Spring / Winter
An ornamental tree with glossy grey-green leaves and dainty wine coloured to black fruits. This tree doesn’t get very tall but can form impressive trunks and can be quite long-lived. A very hardy tree that can withstand extreme coastal and windy conditions. The flowers are rather inconspicuous but you will be treated by their fragrant sweet smell in Winter and Spring seasons. If you’re looking for a feature tree that won’t get very big, but will live long, we can recommend the Wild Olive.
