Out of stock

Maerua angolensis.  This evergreen tree can grow up to 15 m tall in its natural environment, but only reaches a height of about 7 to 9 m in the domestic garden. The sweetly scented flowers appear in terminal clusters, interestingly without petals, but green sepals are present, with a large number of pale white to pink stamens about ± 50 mm long. Sowing: Fill shallow seedling trays with river sand and sow the seeds on top of it and cover with a thin layer of sifted compost. The seeds may show signs of germination after 2–3 weeks. Seedlings can be successfully transplanted into small plastic pots filled with a mixture of sand, loam and compost at a ratio of 3:1:1. Locality: Ex Hort. Harvest: June 2022
