Ochna serrulata

Carnival Bush, Mickey Mouse Bush

The Mickey Mouse bush is a stunning garden subject that will eventually grow about 1.8 by 1.5 metres. It bears a profusion of bright yellow flowers early in spring, followed by red sepals with black berries that are eaten by many bird species. Ochna Serrulata will grow in full sun or in dappled shade beneath other trees. It is deciduous and the new leaves are a lovely shiny bronze.
