Phantom-tree (Meelsakboom, also known as Sprokiesboom) is a collectors item. It is a unique tree that grows in the desert areas of Namibia. Moringa ovalifolia is an erect tree with a thickset main trunk (sometimes multi-trunk), and branches that are full of character.   Since it grows in the desert, it is very water wise and should not be watered at  all during the winter season. During summer, usually after rain, it burst out with large, bright green, twice compound leaves.

Watch out for retail nurseries selling "Moringas" as if they are indigenous to Southern Africa. It is likely that these trees are Moringa oleifera. They are indigenous to South Asia and products made from them are reported to have many health benefits. Plant Phantom tree in an arid garden (small or large) as something different and very special.
