Well done Philip! :clap:

Ok... let me see :hmz:

This tree is not suitable for a small garden because its flowers have a really strong smell in spring. This "strong bush" produces gum which is palatable to us.

I'm thinking jasmine, but not so sure about their gum being palatable??? :hmz: :hmz: :hmz: :hmz:

Not Jasmine... it is a tree and the flowers are not very good smelling!

This tree has a cousin associated with seep lines and I have noticed many of these cousins around Pretoriouskop... Once you have the name of the cousin it should lead directly to the tree I seek... The cousin has silver foliage... GIVE AWAY!!!
