Description:

Ochna serrulata is a hardy, small, semi-deciduous shrub with glossy, mirror-like leaves that flush red in spring.

The profuse, bright yellow, scented flowers are borne from September to December.

The flowers are short lived but are followed by black fruit on an enlarged red calyx that looks like a flower and persists on the shrub for months.

As with Ochna natalitia this plant deserves pride of place in any garden. The seeds attract birds to the garden. Grows very well in containers.

Plant in sun or semi-shade. Used medicinally.
