Description:

Chionanthus foveolatus is a fairly hardy, evergreen, forest tree that varies hugely in size depending on where it grows.

In forests it is huge but in gardens in Gauteng will probably not grow more than 10m tall. It has beautiful glossy, dark green leaves and a rounded crown.

It bears sprays of sweetly scented, white to pale pink flowers from September to January. The purplish-black berries are much sought after by birds.

Plant in a forest garden or as a single specimen in well-drained, well-composted soil.
