Additional Details:
The Sausage Tree also sometimes called the Fetish Tree, is a native of tropical Africa. It has rough Pinnate Leaves, and flowers which have a rather peculiar appearance and hang suspended by long peduncles. From each flower a large fruit develops. These fruits have the appearance of big sausages, and doubtless have given the tree its name.
