Vanwykshout / Tree wisteria
These attractive trees cannot be overlooked when they are covered in large clusters of purple flowers! Surely one of South Africa’s most beautiful. Planted Tree wisterias can often be seen decorating our streets and pavements with their purple flowers. Also a popular wood for making furniture.
Not necessarily a magnet attracting masses of birds, but some insect eating birds might visit these trees.
Duikers, Giraffes and some other game might be seen eating the leaves. In some areas Baboons and Monkeys will occasionally feast on the flower buds.
