Flowers of Gum Bdellium (Commiphora africana)
Answered by: Conrad Richter
Question from: Sue Maguire Raab
Posted on: September 22, 2006 I am trying to find out what color the flower buds are on the Gum Bdellium (Commiphora africana) plant.

The small flowers are reddish-green. The buds would be a similar colour. See

for more botanical information of this fascinating species, and for a photo of a branch.
