The Matumi tree is frost sensitive and unable to withstand drought. It is a neat, upright, evergreen tree with striking, rater long, lancet shaped, bright green leaves. Breonadia salicina is medium-fast growing. It has an aggressive root system and should only be planted in larger gardens. Regrettably Matumi fails in a container. The tree’s roots are fond of running water which makes it a good candidate to stabilize river embankments. Surprisingly Breonadia salicina does not do well in clay soil. Plant a Breonadia salicina (together with some other species) in the garden along or near a running water feature to create a bushveld river atmosphere.

Value to honeybees: Nectar, N2?;  Pollen, P2?;  Flowering months 11-6.   (See  blog-post "The bee-value of South Africa's trees" for an explanation of codes)
