Acacia burkei (=Senegalia burkei) is a hardy, deciduous, medium sized Acacia that has attractive, large round leaflets.
Spikes of white flowers from October to January are followed by bright red seed pods.
This beautiful specimen tree gives dense shade, but is a little slow growing.
The bark is attractively fissured and attracts Woodpeckers and Red Billed Wood Hoopoe that probe under it for insects.
Great to plant for that Bushveld feel.
Size: 12 to 25m
