This showy, evergreen shrub or small tree provides year round colour in your garden. From September to December the scented, golden yellow flowers are borne in clusters, attracting bees and butterflies. The fruit is attractive with red or pink enlarged calyx with oblong, black drupelets that entices birds from spring to summer. New leaves are coppery red and mature to green. The bark is smooth, becoming rough as it matures, and has a grey-brown colour. The Ochna natalitia grows to an average height of 2 – 3 m, making it an ideal screening tree with floral accents during spring and summer.
We have some lovely, old specimens available in our nurseries and invite you to visit us at our North Riding site to have a look.
