This member of the
Burseraceae family was
given this name by Carl Frederik Albert Christensen in 1922. It is found in
Somalia and Yemen and now in Israel, growing in a well
drained soil with little to some water water and lots of sun. The stem
will eventualy grow up to 40 centimetres in diameter, the whole bush
up to five metres. The flowers are white to cream coloured, and the
is is possible to propagate it from cuttings.
Might be a bit skinny
for a caudiciforms, but here it is anyway.
The missing leaves are
3–9(–11)-foliolated, glabrous to densely pubescent, sometimes with
hooked hairs; petiole 2–35 mm long, sometimes narrowly winged;
rhachis sometimes narrowly winged; leaflets linear to oblanceolate,
obovate or suborbicular, 0.3–3.2 x 0.1–2(–2.5) cm, subacute to
retuse at the apex, with entire margins, the lateral leaflets
smaller than the terminal one.
