This is a very interesting plant that belongs to the Carrot family. hen crushed the leaves smell of carrots. The leaves are borne on the ends of the branches and are pinnately compound. Each leaflet is heavily toothed. The small, green to greenish-white flowers are borne in umbels when the trees are leafless. Can be grown as a bonsai and forms a swollen trunk base. It is exceptionally drought-resistant but tolerates high rainfall provided that drainage is good. In Africa it grows in rocky places such as outcrops and hillsides. The bark is yellowish gray-green in color, often peeling off in papery strips. This species is a good specimen plant for hot, dry gardens and will do well on steep, north-facing slopes.
