Description of the plant

This magnificent African ornamental tree, contrary to its nickname of "weeper", exudes joy!

This "weeping" attribute comes from the abundance of nectar that flows from its flowers to the ground, despite the work of the many birds and insects that it attracts! It is particularly decorative, both because of its pretty, very cut leaves, which turn from pink to a beautiful, shiny green, and because of its multitude of flowers in spectacular, bright red clusters, but also because of its regular, symmetrical silhouette, which makes it a remarkable tree. Its flowers form directly from the oldest branches.

In addition to its medicinal properties, it can be eaten: its roots and roasted pods are edible, its roasted seeds are used as a coffee substitute, and its sweet nectar-filled flowers can be chewed.

So quickly, no whining, a weeping bean in your garden!

Also known as : Tree fuchsia, African greenheart, African walnut.
