Cunonia capensis withstands light frost but is not drought resistant. It is an evergreen tree with a medium growth rate.  Red-alder has dark green, compound leaves that are lanceolate in form.  Rachis are wine-red in color (hence the common name). Leaf buds develop from a spoon-like casing - a unique growth form to the Red-alder. The growth form, leaves and display of the flowers of Cunonia capensis (resembling a cream-coloured bottlebrush), make Red alder an interesting choice for larger gardens.
