Small tree from dry South Africa with unusually thick branches and unsually wide trifoliate leaves. These are gorgeous, velvety, with a few spines. It is very ornamental. It starts its life with a caudex and can stay in a pot for eons, keeping a nice caudex with very short shoots. Inforescences show the fabulous classic erythrina-red colour and flowers are velvety too!
We offer a 1-2 year old seedling.
