Spectacular Monthly Tree - Sideroxylon inerme

Although we have many tree species at our nursery that are looking spectacular at any given time, we feature just one tree in particular every month that we know will offer you the best value for money and that will add that special touch to your landscape project. 

Sideroxylon inerme is the only species of this genus that occurs in South Africa where it enjoys protected status. This beautiful shade tree can reach a great age, the most famous one being the magnificent “post office tree” in Mossel Bay which is estimated to be over 600 years old and has been proclaimed a national monument. The White milkwood has a dense, widely spreading crown with beautiful glossy, dark green leaves which are lighter green underneath. The gnarled and twisted stem makes this superb tree an absolute winner as an interesting garden subject. The small, insignificant flowers are greenish-white while the fruit is single seeded, purplish black and berry-like and much favoured by birds. The wood makes an excellent general purpose timber as it is strong and durable while the bark and roots are used medicinally.
