Wildekanferbos (Afr.), Leleshwa (Swahili Maasai)
The Camphor bush is a small, semi-deciduous tree. The branches and foliage form a V-shaped canopy with the stem being covered with pale brown bark. This small tree with its attractive grey foliage is particularly suited to tough conditions, such as areas battered by wind and coastal sea spray to dry inland gardens. It is even able to recover from being almost burnt to the ground. The tree requires no special nurturing.
