Buddleja's are what I plant in my garden to attract butterflies... and they work a charm. I like to plant salvifolia. However I believe the vicar's one is saligna.

These trees are not common in Kruger, however, a rare bird depends on them as a source of food! This bird is infrequently seen in the far north.

I'm taking a guess here.... Is it a yellow wood tree and the bird a narina trogon???

Wildflowergirl you are LUCKY!!! Yes that is the tree! BUT... the bird is the Cape Parrot. :thumbs_up: There is a small population up near the Northern Parts of Kruger... not in Kruger but Magoebaskloof... of around 30 birds.

White and pink, should be the new colors of the Stormers, after losing to the mighty Sharks.

You will find this tree indoors as well as outdoors. Has a beautiful display at this time of the year. This tree is child friendly. One of the easiest to identify, especially at night.
