Commiphora angolensis - Sand Corkwood - 5 Seeds

Commiphora angolensis - Sand Corkwood

This is a listing for pack of 5 seeds of this shrubby aromatic tree.

Originating in Southern Africa, this is a member of the myrrh family and like its relations it produces an aromatic resin. It forms either a small to medium shrub or a small sized tee with a thickened stems storing water, making it tolerant to droughts. The tree has elliptical leaves with a felt like surface on both sides. The bark often peels off in large flakes as the tree gets older. The flowers are yellowish and inconspicuous and are followed by a fleshy drupe containing a single seed.

They are reported to be hardy in only light frosts, but given how arid their natural habitat is, I would not want to test this in anything other than a desert area. The make an excellent subject for a natural bonsai, being relatively slow growing and developing a massive trunk as they grow. Grow as a pot plant either to be kept in a greenhouse/conservatory or as a houseplant where it will be a natural indoor bonsai. They can go outside in the summer when the temperatures are above 5 Deg C.
