Markhamia lutea

Markhamia lutea


One packet contains 10 seeds.

On the rise in cultivation, this small subtropical tree is native to East Africa. It is also commonly known as the Nile Tulip or Trumpet for its funnel-shaped yellow flowers, which appear in terminal clusters and whose throats have a maroon stripe.  It is named for the illustrious explorer Sir Clements Robert Markham, who is responsible for the collection of Cinchona seeds from South America (subsequently enabling the English to treat malaria on a massive scale). The leaves can grow over a foot long, so it is no wonder why elephants prefer to snack on this plant.
