Commiphora pyracanthoides - Tall Common Corkwood

This is a listing for pack of 5 seeds of this caudiciform succulent tree

Orginating in southern Africa, this is a member of the myrrh family and like its relations it produces an aromatic resin. It is a small to medium sized tee with a thickened trunk storing water, making it tolerant to droughts. The tree has glossy leaves with wavy margins, the branches have a hard spine at the end. The bark is corky as it ages and often peels off in large flakes. The flowers are reddish 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.
