Fever Trees

fever trees

Fever trees are tall and slender trees, reaching up to 12m, with a spreading but light crown and are the perfect neighbour for plants seeking light – but not direct sunlight. The long, white, vicious thorns protect garden birds nesting in its wide side branches from predators.

  • Beautiful specimen tree but even more breathtaking if you plant a few close together to form a mini-forest.
  • Only suitable for larger gardens in temperate climates, although they will survive fairly low temperatures and light frost as mature specimens.
