Acacia xanthophloea. (Fabaceae) Fever Tree (e), Koorsboom (a), umHlosinga (z). Striking, tall, deciduous, fast growing tree with distinctive yellow bark and fragrant, yellow flowers in early summer. A favoured nesting tree for birds. It is a natural indicator of water and therefore it requires regular watering all year especially whilst young. It can also tolerate inundation with water for a major part of the year. As the shade is sparse, many plants and lawn grass will grow underneath it. When planted in groves where the sunlight can play on the stem they can create a dramatic effect. If you look closely at the bark of old trees it looks as if they are covered with hieroglyphics. Size 10 to 15m. Sowing: The seed should be soaked in hot water overnight. This causes the seeds to swell and usually by the next morning they are ready to be sown. Seed can be sown in seedling trays using a well drained seedling medium and then covered lightly. Locality : Ex Hort. Date of harvest : April 2018
