Red-ivory  (Rooi-ivoor) is a medium-small, evergreen tree with a straight, upright trunk and a dense rounded canopy. It grows fairly slowly, tolerates mild frost and requires modest water.

The species is well adapted to Gauteng's climate and comes highly recommended for gardens in this region. It is somewhat slow-growing, but is otherwise a no-nonsence, easy grower.
