Senegalia burkei (previously Acasia burkei) withstands light frost and is somewhat drought tolerant. It is a deciduous thorn tree that grows at a medium rate. Black monkey-thorn has fairly large (for the Genus) twice compound, grey-green leaves. It bears striking cream-colored flower spikes.
Some gardening ideas:
The tree's beautiful textured bark and its deep shade during summer makes it a good choice for a large garden. Birds love to nest in its dense branching structure. Senegalia burkei is an ideal species to plant in a large pot. It responds well to pruning and can be shaped to exhibit a striking appearance. Use this approach when you plant Black monkey thorn in a small or even very small garden. The species soon forms a thickset trunk, making it a popular bonsai.
