Die "klipbome" fasineer my net so.  Hierdie een het on in die Kuisebpas in Namibia gekry. Ek het nie 'n idee wat dit is nie.


Nice Contribution Mev VA. As 'n Mens net die Blaar van nader kan sien sal dit baie help om hom te identifiseer.

Dankie, Offshore, ek wens ek het van julle mense se kennis oor die natuur gehad.

Ha, it is never ending. Ons Flora is so divers, dit verander letterlik in elke Provinsie. Daar is so baie om te leer daar is bittermin regte Kenners. Ek het 'n Vriend wat elke Boom in SA ken en hy ken hul Afrikaanse, Engelse en Latynse Name.

Miskien kan jy my help om die een uit te ken. EK probeer uitvind watse boom dit is. EK het ongelukkig net fotos geneem van die vrug en blare en nie die hele boom nie.

Waar groei hy dw1?

Het hom daar by Van Rhynsdorp afgeneem. Ek is nie seker hy groei natuurlik daar nie. Dit was by 'n garage in die dorp en kon dalk aangeplant wees.

'n Pragtige Botterboom. Maklik 2 meter hoog
Naby die een was een wat 2 maal so groot is maar dit is weggesteek in die bosse en nie maklik om foto te kry nie.

We have a tree at work that I am told is an African Flame Tree, yet if I google this, the pictures I get are not the same tree?

It has a beautiful flat flower that is "flame" coloured and appears to be made up of leaves not the normal "tissue" one associates with a flower. It flowers before the foliage comes. (deciduous)

I have no pictures of it in bloom but here are a couple of it with leaves.

I would also like to now if one can take a cutting or grow one from seed (never seen any seed)?

Flowers are out, what do you think it is?

Not to sure what newer methods are in use, Martyn, but we used to cut a thinner branch off at an angle, trim to about 30cm, ensure it has a few buds on it and then simply plant it in a bag/pot with some good soil. I know they're not difficult to propagate
