    If you’re looking for a quintessential African tree, we can recommend the Paperbark thorn tree. Once mature, it naturally forms an umbrella canopy that is iconic to the African landscape. The sweetly scented flowers will attract a myriad of birds, insects and butterflies in Spring. The lovely flaky bark is what attracts gardeners who are also looking for a feature tree. Suitable for large gardens where the wide canopy can have enough space to fill out.
