Afrikaans name: Fluweelkanniedood
The Velvet-leaved Corkwood (or Velvet Corkwood if you like) is a smallish tree that doesn't reach a height of 10 metres.
It is not a spectacular tree in any way. It gets tiny flowers and its fruit are like small berries.
The Velvet-leaved Corkwood is not often used as food by any animals, nor have us humans really found a use for it!
