Parsley-tree (Wildepietersieliebos) is a fast growing, medium-small, semi-deciduous tree with a shrub-like growth form and somewhat aggressive roots. The tree is known for its shiny, golden-brown, flaking bark and is often multi-stem. Its leaf form is very variable, to the extent that Meg Coates Palgrave classifies 5 variations. Heteromorpha arborescens's flowers and fruit are mostly inconspicuous. It requires moderate water and is very frost hardy. 

A few gardening ideas:

Heteromorpha arborescens is an easy grower. It is an ideal candidate for cold areas where severe frost may occur. It grows a bit wild and untidy and needs occasional pruning. Plant Parsley-tree in a larger garden as a screening tree or use it as a focal point. The species is prone to worm attack, especially during  spring time. This is easily controlled by spraying it with an insecticide, or better, by applying a systemic insecticide via soil drench.  

 Value to honeybees: Nectar, N2;  Pollen, P1;  Flowering months 9-5.   (See  blog-post "The bee-value of South Africa's trees" for an explanation of codes)
