These flowerheads of Tarchonanthus camphoratus are creamy, nearly white. They vary in size and may be darker, yellowish in colour. The male and female flowers grow on separate trees. Male flowerheads have more individual florets per head than the female ones. The flowers of Tarchonanthus camphoratus are covered in woolly hairs. So are the fruits, the small nutlets that follow. There is a fragrance, also in the heads of fruits (Coates Palgrave, 2002; www.plantzafrica.com).
