Tree Wisteria Bolusanthus Speciosus

Bolusanthus speciosus tree westeria

BOLUSANTHUS SPECIOSUS ~ TREE WISTERIA Bolusanthus speciosus, also known as Tree Wisteria or Vanwykshout (Afrikaans), it is definitely one of the most remarkable indigenous trees in S.A! This unique tree is widely spread across Southern Africa (From Angola and Zambia to KZN, South Africa).When it is flowering it imitates the Jacaranda tree which unfortunately is recognized as an invader species in parts of the country.  

Tree Wisteria is a small – medium decorative tree that is deciduous. The bark is rough and brownish-grey in colour. The wood is highly valuable for carpenters and it makes great furniture! Its leaves hang from lovely drooping branches and the fragrant flowers are arranged in bunches most of the time covering the entire tree. The flowers bloom from August to January each year and this is a spectacular sight.tree westeria in bloom

This is a wonderful tree for landscaping and a great choice for a street tree as it has a non-aggressive root system. This also makes it suitable for your own garden at home. Bolusanthus speciosus could be your very own garden feature and it can also survive periods of drought – a very helpful feature in the drought our country is going through.  Given enough time these trees could be a great alternative to the Jacaranda REFERENCES:
