The pink wild pear, Dombeya burgessiae, is a charming, small tree ideal for compact gardens, reaching up to 4m tall. Its large, velvety leaves and dense clusters of pink to white flowers add a tropical touch, especially when planted near water features. This versatile species, native to KwaZulu-Natal and beyond, is not only a horticultural gem but also a favorite of black rhinos. Remarkably resilient, it thrives in both sun and shade, tolerates light frost and drought, and can be easily propagated from seed. A fast grower, it reaches full size in just three years, making it a splendid addition to any garden.
