Description:

Terminalia phanerophlebia is a gorgeous, deciduous, small to medium sized, upright tree that is frost hardy and fast growing and has an interesting branching pattern and shining purplish branchlets. The attractive leaves have a soft, velvety feel to them and are an unusual olive-green colour. Clusters of upright candle-like spikes of clear white flowers rise above the clusters of leaves from October to February. These clusters of leaves give this tree its common name. The two-winged fruits are attractive and turn a pale, brownish-pink when they dry and hang in clusters on the tree from January to June. This tree looks mystical in the dusk especially in winter when the leaves become a dark Khaki-green colour. This decorative tree is also suitable for street planting. Plant in sun or semi-shade. Size 3 to 6m
