Parsley Tree Overview

Heteromorpha arborescens is a small to medium-sized, deciduous tree or straggly shrub species from the Apiaceae family. It is suitable for a small, low-maintenance garden and is commonly known by the name Parsley Tree. The bark often helps to distinguish it from other species, for it is papery and smooth, peeling off horizontally and leaving ring-like scars below. When new, these have a surface like the finest satin. It is found growing naturally in South Africa and Yemen. ZA Distribution: Eastern Cape, Free State, Gauteng, KwaZulu-Natal, Limpopo, Mpumalanga, North West, Northern Cape, Western Cape.
