Cussonia paniculata has grey-green leaves that are large and leathery and clustered at the ends of the branches. It is the ideal form plant with a truly indigenous look. The purple fruits attract birds to the garden. The flowers are insect pollinated which also attracts birds. It is a lovely element of a bush clump when planted with Olea and Buddleja.
Plant Cussonia paniculata in a well-drained soil and keep on the dry side.
The leaves of the Natal form differ from the Highveld form.
