Afrikaans name: Dopperkiaat
The Round-leaved Teak is also sometimes called the Round-leaved Bloodwood.
This tree can grow to a height of 10 metres or more.
It can be found in KwaZulu-Natal, Mpumalanga and Limpopo in suitable areas. Outside of South Africa it can be found in Zimbabwe, Swaziland, Zambia and Malawi.
The tree gets yellow flowers which attract a large number of bees.
The wood is not particularly durable so it is not used too often for furniture and other purposes
