Dear Anne, apologies for the delay in getting back to you! There is even a ‘prostrate’ variety of the spekboom, developing its branches not higher than 15 cm above the soil and forming a dense ground cover. Die Engelse naam vir die spekboom is die beskrywende Elephant’s Food (en nie Pork Bush soos die direkte vertaling uit Afrikaans verkeerdelik lui nie), want dit vorm tot 80% van die Oos-Kaapse olifante se dieet. Under wet conditions, it uses the same system as rainforest plants and under dry conditions it switches to a system used by desert plants like cacti. R 450.00. This tree normally attains a height of 1.5 – 2m in a garden setting and has a small non-invasive root system which makes it ideal for poolside planting. Scientific Consultant for Desertification and Sustainable Development. A lot of interesting information on the spekboom and many photos (
