    Please can anyone confirm that this is a Tetradium? Is it T.daniellii, if not what is it?
    Thankyou.

    Thank you Ernie.The photo you found is stunning,certainly looks right.However I am rather surprised that in a 2007 catalogue the nursery is using such an old name,with an even older spelling.It has been Tetradium daniellii for at least the last 10 years.Thanks again, Luddite.

    Nurseries are awful for keeping up to date with plant names . . . I've seen some using names that were well over 100 years out of date.
