Mountain Maytenus Overview
Handsome, small stocky tree with a deep green, dense, rounded crown and stout trunk, with the proportions of a larger tree, but only reaching a height of 4 to 6 m. This makes it a good choice for today's smaller gardens. The bark is pale greyish brown to ashy grey, smooth when young, becoming rough and corky with vertical grooves as it matures. The light grey bark contrasts with the dark green crown. ZA Distribution: Eastern Cape, Northern Cape, Western Cape.
