Combretum zeyheri, the large-fruited bushwillow or Zeyher's bushwillow, is a species of flowering plant in the family Combretaceae, usually found growing on acidic or sandy soils in tropical African savannas.[1][2] A small to medium-sized tree, its roots are used as a source of material for making baskets and as a traditional medicine for haemorrhoids.[3]
