Profile last updated: 20 Nov 2018


Jointed Baloghia is a shrub or small tree growing up to 8 m tall. The bark is greenish-cream, smooth or slightly vertically fissured. Leaves are 6.5 – 15 cm long, tapering at both the tips and the bases, and green and glossy on both surfaces. A pair of glands is situated on the margin of the leaf about 5 mm above the stalk, this makes the leaf appear jointed at the stem. Small white flowers are borne in clusters at the tips of side shoots. Fruits are fawn capsules about 2 cm in diameter, containing two to four dark-red and cream spotted seeds.
