SA No. 666
Vaalpypsteelboom / Silver Fingerleaf
With their silvery leaves looking like hands with fingers and slightly rough trunks – these wonderful trees have a certain charm about them. No flashy colours, but lovely trees! The wood of these trees were used for making smoking pipes and that is where the Afrikaans name Pypsteelboom comes from. The leaves also have a characteristic pleasantly smell when crushed, almost like herbs. Crush a leaf and smell.
