PLANT FROM AFRICA USED FOR CANCER TREATMENT

Sutherlandia frutescens
Cancer Bush

sutherlandia-frutescens-cancer-bush-pic

An odd, South African shrub with fine, grey-green foliage and showy, bright scarlet flowers and curious, inflated seedpods.

Its common name, Cancer Bush, comes from the fact that the tea of the dried leaves and twigs have been used for treating the side effects of cancers and HIV / AIDS.

In great demand as a decorative garden plant.

Grows to 3 feet in height.

Very uncommon.
