Vachellia xanthophloea | Fever-tree for sale | Koorsboom
Vachellia (previously acacia) xanthophloea tolerates light frost but is not drought resistant. Fever tree is a fast growing deciduous thorn tree. It provides light shade and one can thus establish a garden in its shade. Vachellia xanthophloea has a showy yellow-green trunk and branches. Trees planted in a group is a beautiful sight. Fever tree grows very large and can therefore only be planted in large gardens or parks. Regrettably it does not do well in a container and this method is not a solution for the small garden. Acacia xanthophloea has an aggressive root system and needs ample water.
