Loxostylis alata | Tarwood trees for sale | Teerhout
The Tarwood tree is an undiscovered jewel. Loxostylis alata is a fast growing, evergreen tree. It grows to a medium-small size - ideal for the smaller garden. Tarwood has beautiful bright green compound leaves which have a reddish tint when young. The tree bears an abundance of white flowers, quickly transforming into red colored fruit. The latter remains on the tree for a long time, eventually turning creamy-white. Seeds of Loxostylis alata have a tar like cover - hence the common name "Tarwood". In our experience at the Treeshop nursery, it withstands temperatures as low as -1C.
Value to honeybees: Nectar, N2; Pollen, P1?; Flowering months 8-4, (10-12). (See blog-post "The bee-value of South Africa's trees" for an explanation of codes)
