A member of the northeast African clade of Moringa, M. borziana is a remarkable dwarf species. It has a large underground tuber and one or two stems, which are usually just 1-2 meters tall. The species often flowers leafless, or just as it leafs out, such that the plants are in fruit by the time they are fully leafed out. The flowers are big, yellow, and probably bee pollinated. Only one is flowering at the moment, from the coastal dry tropical woodlands of eastern Kenya. They might not be self-compatible so getting seeds seems unlikely just yet, but this will only be a matter of time as the rest of the plants mature and they synchronize their flowering.
