I'm not sure whether this is a shrub or a small tree :hmz: I saw it across from Nsemani Dam in mid-November 2014.

Hi Arks

I think it is a small Delagoa thorn.

It has the right look, correct leave structure, correct flower and is in the typical geological area where you would find the Delagoa thorn.

Thanks so much for the ID, Imberbe :gflower: I googled a bit and it looks like your ID is spot on :thumbs_up:
