A medium-sized, partially deciduous tree native to South Africa to 25 m tall with a spreading crown of pinnate, reddish emergent foliage and light purple flowers on upright spikes. The attractive seed pods are densely covered in golden hairs.
The wood is durable and used for furniture and carving but the tree also makes a wonderful ornamental for warm temperate and tropical climates in USDA Zones 10 or above. Germination: Soak seeds in hot water for 24 hours. Sow 1cm deep in coir or sowing mix + sand or perlite. Keep bright and constantly moist but not wet.
