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. 

Value to honeybees: Nectar, N0-3;  Pollen, P0-1;  Extrafloral Nectar, EN0-1; Flowering months 7-11, (9).   (See  blog-post "The bee-value of South Africa's trees" for an explanation of codes)

Clay tolerance: Vachellia xanthophloea tolerates severe clay. (See blog-post "Tips for Planting Trees in Clay Soils" for more detail)

Available in 50L , 100L and 450L. Contact Sandra for details on Treeshop's 450L trees
