Snuff-box tree is a small, evergreen, shrub-like tree. Of course you can trim it up to form a single or multi-trunk specimen. It grows reasonably fast, has sharp, needle thorns, and bears striking white flowers. Oncoba spinosa is slightly frost sensitive. It is a no-nonsense, easy to grow, plant-and-forget tree with a non-aggressive root system. Its bushy appearance makes Snuff-box tree an excellent screening plant for a small or even very small garden.

Value to honeybees: Nectar, N2?;  Pollen, P2?;   Flowering months 9-2.   (See  blog-post "The bee-value of South Africa's trees" for an explanation of codes)
