  1. Diospyros austro-africana

    Diospyros austro-africana is a very hardy, attractive, evergreen, multi-stemmed shrub or small tree whose mature, medium- to dark-brown bark, blisters and peals into long, narrow flaky-strips. The reddish-brown branches are finely-haired, similar to the fine hairs on the attractive, small obovate leaves which give this shrub/tree a dusty-silvery appearance.

    From August to September it bears pendulous, creamy-white, cerise-pink or red lantern-like flowers which attract birds, butterflies and other insects to the garden. The berries that follow turn red then black and are much sought after by birds. Male and female flowers on separate plants therefore only females bear seed.

    This tough, water-wise plant grows in full sun or semi-shade.

    Size: 6 to 10m

  2. Pelargonium tomentosum

    Pelargonium tomentosum is a hardy, evergreen shrubby perennial with spreading branches. The attractive rounded peppermint-scented leaves are velvety to the touch. The minute hairs on the leaves trap dew which glitters like diamonds, a wonderful foliage plant.

    The umbels of tiny white flowers have purple markings and are borne from October to January.

    Use in moist semi-shade areas and on banks in well-drained soil. It also makes a good container plant.

    Remove old leaves regularly to create the best effect of silvery, sparkling foliage.

    Use as a culinary herb.

    Size: up to 30cm
