The Culsia is an outstanding and unusual plant for home landscapes. These two clusia varieties – rosea and guttifera – have an exotic texture and are drought tolerant.

The foliage is this plant’s feature characteristic – leaves are thick and leathery, shaped like fat teardrops or paddles.

Low-maintenance and trouble-free, these plants branch out close to the ground and can get very wide.

They’re excellent as hedges, large accent plants, or grow them as a wall of privacy and/or shade.

Their salt-tolerant nature makes them ideal for a seaside home, and the unique foliage adds unique texture to a tropical garden.

Rosea is also known as “Pitch Apple.”

With the biggest leaves, it’s often grown as a small tree or you can grow it as a very wide shrub.

If you choose the tree-form, buy one already trained to a single trunk.

These shrubs are sometimes called Autograph Tree or Plant because you can scratch a name or initials onto a leaf and it will stay there forever…or as long as the leaf remains on the plant.
