Capensia Nidra Green Red

250 cm - ila tree

Very well-known and immediately recognizable for its red and green foliage, Capensia is a colorful tree common in the regions of Central and South Africa. The tree is an evergreen and requires a temperate climate to grow, with constant and copious rainwater especially during its early, delicate years.

It can reach a height of 5 meters on its own and with the shade and protection provided by taller plant in the forest it is not uncommon that it can reach up to 10 meters.

The colorful foliage has the function of attracting bees and butterflies so they can carry the small seeds – which grow in capsules above the leaves – and spread new Capensias.

Due to its colorful appearance it is today commonly used as an ideal complement both in Indoor and Outdoor environments to create a touch of colour and warmth in every house and Gardens.
