We are so pleased for you Flutterby.

Brilliant pic.

I would also like to know where Sharifa got her Coral tree.

We bought our Coral tree from a nursery called Grow Wild on Main Road between Kyalami and Lonehill.

A lovely place to find just about all your indigenous trees and plants.

Five years ago it was a little tree about 50cm high O\/

Thanks Sharifa. I am sure I will find a nursery here in Pretoria that sells them.
