Weeping boer-bean is a medium-large, semi-deciduous, mildly frost sensitive tree with a slightly aggressive root system. It has dark-green, once divided leaves and bears striking deep red flowers, sometimes in profusion. During spring time you will easily identify Schotia brachypetala in the northern part of Kruger National Park by red patches standing out in the otherwise green bush veld. 

Some gardening ideas:

Weeping boer-bean is a "must plant" if you want flowering trees in your garden. It is also quite deserving as a shade tree. Take note though, that Schotia brachypetala may grow into a large tree and should not be planted in smaller gardens. The species responds well to pruning and thrives in a container. Use this method if you have a small or even very small garden. Weeping boer-bean is also a popular bonsai.

Value to honeybees: Nectar, N0-2?;  Pollen, P0-2;  Propolis, PR0-2 Flowering months 8-12, (9-10).   (See  blog-post "The bee-value of South Africa's trees" for an explanation of codes)

Available in 50L and 100L.  Contact Sandra for availability and price of trees in 450L.
