Spectacular Monthly Tree
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.
The decorative Acacia xanthophloea with its distinctive sulphur-yellow bark has become one of our most popular indigenous trees. The common name, Fever tree, refers to the fact that it grows wild in areas where malaria occurs and was thought to be the cause of this malady by the early settlers. Growing to a height of about 12 meters and with a rounded or flattened spreading crown of about 10 meters when mature, this superb tree looks absolutely beautiful as a single specimen and is quite breathtaking when planted as an avenue or in a group. When the bright yellow pom-pom flowers appear a multitude of bees and insects are attracted to the tree which in turn, attracts a host of insectivorous birds. Provided that the Acacia xanthophloea receives adequate water and only a little frost, it will reward you with fast growth, providing dappled shade and a wonderful focal point in the landscape in a relatively short time.
