Drooping-leaf yellowwood (Eng.), Henkel-se-geelhout (Afr.)
An attractive ornamental tree, this is one of the most recognisable of the yellowwoods. It can easily be distinguished from its close relatives by its long, slender, drooping leaves. It has a straight, well-formed trunk and naturally assumes a pyramid-shape as it grows, eventually becoming very tall. It makes a beautiful specimen in large gardens and parks.
