Kigelia africana - Sausage Tree


Kigelia africana - Sausage Tree (Kigelia africana - Sausage Tree)

My sausage tree is 3 years old now. I think it's over 8 ft (2.5m) tall. It's been loving the very hot weather as long as it gets tons of water...as it's native to tropical Africa where it receives lots of rain. Photo taken Sept. 11, 2013.

Did you grow it from seed?

Yes, it was grown from a seed which was planted on March 17th, 2010. I remembered very well the day I planted it because it was Saint Patrick's Day.

Seed grown plants are always more rewarding, even if the wait is longer.

I know...and speaking of seeds, I still need to mail your seeds out. I feel horrible I haven't sent them out yet.

No rush - I'm still working on a decent selection for you guys.
