Handsome, quick growing and reasonably cold resistant, this tree is recommended for shady areas in gardens with a mild to warm climate.

This is a medium to large tree, that has been classified as mostly evergreen or deciduous or semi-deciduous. This beautifully decorative tree's leaves turn bright red to purple in winter, dropping just before flowering, which starts around August and continues through to November.

Found from the coast to the midlands in the eastern regions of South Africa and neighbouring Swaziland.

Crush the leaves,add a bit of iron and you can make ink. Quite a useful tree in stopping wagons long ago.

I'm taking a guess here. I went googling a bit, but still not sure I'm on the right tree.

Protea nitida or Blousuikerbos. Wagon tree in English.
