Tetradium daniellii (Bee bee tree). Deciduous, spreading tree with smooth grey bark and ash-like, dark green leaves which turn yellow in the autumn. Large clusters of small, fragrant, 5-petalled white flowers in July/August are then followed by clusters of small red fruit which, when ripened, open to reveal black buckshot seeds.


Needs full sun and fertile, well-drained soil. Fully hardy. Propagate by softwood cuttings in summer, sow seed in autumn or plant root cuttings in late winter.
