Bushveld Gardenia

What a beautiful tree this is at this time of year. The flowers are creamy to yellow but only seen from August to December. They have grey-green fruits which are rough in texture. The bark of the tree is very smooth and grey in colour with patches of yellow from the bark underneath.

It’s believed to have magical powers and was often planted at the entrance of homesteads to keep away the evil spirits.
