This is a tree with a most unusual and apparently unexplained feature. At certain times of the year the leaves emit a smell resembling that of carrion. It can be quite strong at times and could lead to a search for a dead animal in the vicinity. It is quite hard to believe that it is coming from a tree! ZA Distribution: Eastern Cape, Gauteng, KwaZulu-Natal, Limpopo, Mpumalanga, North West.
