Additionally, the trees contain a white powder to reflect the harsh sun rays of the African sky. Furthermore, the bark forms golden brown scales. But watch out! These scales are razor-sharp, so do not get too close. They sprout bright yellow flowers around June and July. Interestingly, the flower buds we can eat when they are very young.
