The bright mauve to purple flowers of Agathosma glabrata, commonly known as Lemon buchu, are an eye-catcher in any garden. Buchus are identified by the presence of small, round oil glands present on the leaves and fruit. Crushing the leaves of this buchu releases a sweet lemon scent. Buchus are easily identified in the veld when brushing against a bush and smelling the sweet to pungent aroma.
