These love the heat. A friend has them in Geraldton WA. They are a pretty tree with blueish grey folage and grey bark. Ideal for Hot Dry sub/Tropical zones with minimal to no frost | Reville - Tabulam , NSW 08-Jul-2008


Marula stones are very easily sprouted on their intended growing sites by completely enclosing them in fresh manure: that from cattle is preferred, but horse, rabbit, pig and chicken will suffice. Marula trees are very frost tender. | Keith Taylor - Bloempoort, MP 31-Dec-2008
