Purple-pod Terminalia

Terminalia pruniodes
 

 

 

 

 

1/ A proportion of the seeds is normally damaged by insects, but sound seeds germinate readily. Best results can be obtained by stripping the wings and soaking the seeds for a few hours before sowing. They should germinate within a few weeks. The species is exceptionally drought-resistant, and can withstand a fair amount of cold. It is a successful garden plant, but one should bear in mind that the nauseating odour of the flowers could be quite overpowering. It can grow to about 6m in 15 years.
