It produces attractive white flowers. In leafless condition people from Namibia call it “the ghost tree of Etosha” (close to the National parks). Countless products are obtained from the plant, which is also called “green gold” in Africa, because no other tree or plant has such a high level of efficient and concentrated bio-ressources.
