Hello Tienie, I don't know as much about South African plants as I
would like, but I suppose the Baobap should be part of your selection.
And how about the 'old man of the desert' or 'Plant-Mens' Pachypodium
namaquensis. Doesn't look much like a tree, OK, perhaps in this
catechory Aloe dichotoma would have a better score...

Do you know these SA web sites?
