Introducing the Parkinsonia Africana African Wattle, a slender and sparsely branched tree that is a common sight in the Namib desert of Namibia. This remarkable species exudes uniqueness wherever it is found, including the extreme southwest corner of Botswana and the northern parts of South Africa. The plant boasts lax racemes of bright yellow flowers and brown pods. The leaves serve not only as browse for game animals but also for livestock. Belonging to a rare breed of plants, it is known by several different names in other Namibian languages, including Omuwombamenje, Lemoendoring, Grünhaarbaum, and others. With its unique features and distinctive appearance, this African Wattle is a must-have for any avid plant collector!
