The dark burgundy of a Kigelia africana flower is an impressive sight in almost any setting. The yellow anthers contrast well against the velvety backdrop.
The cluster of pale greenish purple buds dangling below the flower will not develop if the open one on the shared stalk is successfully fertilised. They wither and fall, allowing all allocated energy arriving from the tree to develop one large sausage-shaped fruit (Coates Palgrave, 2002).
