Vachellia sphaerocephala, Acacia sphaerocephala, Bulls-Horn Acacia, Bee Wattle

Click to see full-size image Vachellia sphaerocephala, Acacia sphaerocephala
Family: Fabaceae
Subfamily: Mimosoideae
Bulls-Horn Acacia, Bee Wattle
Origin: Mexico
Big tree > 20 ftSmall tree 10-20 ftFull sunModerate waterYellow/orange flowersThorny or spiny

The name comes from the shape of the thorns which do indeed resemble the horns of a bull. The tree has a strong, symbiotic relationship with a species of ant, Pseudomyrmex sphaerocephala for which it is the obligate habitat. The ants act as caretakers for the tree, and clear the ground and keep it free of any other plants and even prune surrounding branches of other trees that threaten to outshade the acacia. Without the protection of the ant colony, the acacia tree would fall vulnerable to chewing insects such as beetles or caterpillars, and surrounding trees and shrubs would quickly outcompete the acacia without the maintnance work of the ants to keep the tree safe.

Close related species - Acacia collinsii.

Vachellia xanthophloea, Acacia xanthophloea, Fever tree 

Click to see full-size image Vachellia xanthophloea, Acacia xanthophloea
Family: Fabaceae
Subfamily: Mimosoideae
Fever tree
Origin: South Africa
Can be used for bonsaiBig tree > 20 ftSmall tree 10-20 ftFull sunModerate waterWhite/off-white flowersThorny or spinySubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short timeFlood tolerant

The fever tree is an attractive, semi-deciduous to deciduous tree approximately 15 to 25 meters tall and has an open, rounded to spreading or flattish crown which is sparsely foliated. The characteristic, almost luminous, lime green to greenish-yellow bark is smooth, slightly flaking, and coated in a yellow powdery substance. If the powdery surface is rubbed away with the finger it will reveal a green bark beneath. It has a slender to spreading, sparse, roundish crown of feathery foliage. The thorns are long, straight and paired.

This species occurs in groups in low-lying swampy areas. Because its range coincides with regions where malaria is prevalent, it is called "Fever Tree."

Bread Flower. One of the most impressive tropical vines that is very popular in Thailand and other South-East Asia countries. Moderate growth woody climber with clusters of freshly-baked-bread fragrant white flowers, it is easy to care and tolerates wide range of conditions. It can be trained as a compact bush and is good for container culture. Attracts butterflies and hummingbirds.
This plant is relatively cold hardy according to our experience. Mild frost doesn't do any damage to it, even large tropical leaves stay glossy green and healthy. It is very vigorous grower that can create nice privacy hedge or cover a large fence.
