Looking for a fast-growing tree for your garden? Consider Celtis africana, commonly known as White Stinkwood. This deciduous tree is a member of the Cannabaceae family and is widespread throughout South Africa and Ethiopia. It's known for its pale trunk and branches and hemispherical canopy. Celtis africana is also a popular choice for bonsai enthusiasts.
