Natal Mahogany

Trichilia dregeana

I didn’t seek out this tree and had never seen one before spying it in the corner of Sky Nursery’s indoor garden section. It looks like a coffee plant but more upright, with beautify leathery leaves. I suspect the ‘Natal’ part of the name is a sneaky way of saying this is really just the small state of the giant tree it will become. The nursery tag does say 6+ feet… I’m assuming anywhere between 6 and 60 feet? Ha. Well the sunroom ceiling is only 7 feet, so we’ll find out pretty soon!
