Ochna natalitia is a hardy, semi-deciduous, large shrub with glossy leaves that flush red in spring.
This beautiful plant deserves pride of place in any garden with its profuse, sweetly scented, yellow flowers from September to December and black fruit on an enlarged red calyx.
The calyx persists for months and they look like starry red flowers.
The seeds attract so many birds to the garden that the shrub literally shivers with birds.
Plant in well-drained compost rich soil in sun or semi-shade. Makes a beautiful container plant.
Size Up to 4m
