Nuxia floribunda Seeds

 Forest Elder, Forest Nuxia or Wild Elder Tree Seeds

The forest elder is an attractive, moisture-loving, floriferous tree and it makes a conspicuous feature in the forest patches it commonly inhabits.

The forest elder has a number of useful attributes. As a traditional Zulu medicine the bark is used as a strengthening medicine after a kraal (village) member has passed away, while in other parts of Africa the leaves are recorded being used to treat coughs, colds, influenza, fevers, indigestion, infantile convulsions as well as in rituals (Hutchings et al. 1996). Nectar is produced in abundance making this a good honey tree (Venter & Venter 2002).

The wood is a pale yellow, is close-grained and is hard and heavy. As a result it is used for fencing and general carpentry (Van Wyk & Van Wyk 1997), as well as for furniture, turnery and fuel and previously in the construction of wagons (Immelman et al. 1973). The bark is rich in tannins at 5.71% (Hutchings et al. 1996).

It is becoming an increasingly popular garden subject, noted for its conspicuous flowers and shapely crown and, with a growing number of plantsmen now offering the species for sale, its economic value is on the increase too.

Small to medium-sized tree. Leaves opposite or in whorls of 3, broadly elliptic, light glossy green, hairless; margin entire or obscurely toothed on young plants. Flowers small, white, borne in large, conspicuous, branched heads, up to 300 mm long; sweetly scented. Fruit a small ovoid capsule, protruding from the persistent calyx, pale brown.
