MEDIUM WATER REQUIREMENTS
A medium to large deciduous tree with a rounded crown. The bark is grey and generally smooth, but sometimes flaky in older plants. The leaves are opposite, leathery and hairy on both surfaces. The cup-shaped flowers are large, dark maroon and unpleasant smelling (smell of rotting meat). The flowers only last for a day. The fruit is a large (up to 18cm), sausage-shaped greyish-brown pod that weighs up to 10kg and contains a fibrous pulp in which many seeds are embedded.
