Euclea crispa (Ebenaceae). Blue Guarri (e), Bloughwarrie (a), umNgandane (z), umGwali (x), mohlakola (NS), motlhaletsogane (Tsw), mutangule (v). This very hardy, rather slow growing evergreen tree has a white stem and beautiful blue-green or olive-green leaves. The very small, sweetly scented, greenish-white flowers appear in late summer. This is a very attractive small tree that has edible black berries and attracts birds and mammals that feed off the seeds. The dense leafy crown makes this a wonderful screening plant and a must for a bird garden or informal hedge. A delicious jam can be made of the fruit and it has many medicinal and household uses. Size 3 to 6m. S.A. No. 594. Sowing: Sow seeds in summer in a rich seedling mixture and keep moist. Locality: Bloemfontein. Harvest: August 2023
