The Wanza tree is native to Africa and frequently used to shade crops like coffee, or planted near homes or monasteries, so it's not as frequently subjected to the kind of deforestation that has affected so many other trees.
With seven white wanza flowers representing spiritual awakening and the collective consciousness, on a rainbow background symbolizing a bridge to the world tree, the nineteenth leaf in my world tree series is the Amhara Wanza.
