Euclea divinorum, the magic guarri, is a bushy, often rounded shrub of about 4 m, sometimes a small tree of 8 m in height. Its branched stems are grey-brown and smooth with lenticels and brown glands when young, dark and rough with fissuring at age.
The plant is found in the northeast of South Africa, but has a much wider distribution in the African tropics to the north. It grows in many diverse conditions, such as along river banks, on rocky slopes and in woodland (Coates Palgrave, 2002; Van Wyk and Van Wyk, 1997; www.plantzafrica.com).
