Clusia lanceolata

Red-Heart Porcelain Flower, Lance-leaf Autograph Tree



Clusia lanceolata

$12.95  

NEW! - This showy exotic has lovely 1½ inch porcelain white flowers with a dark red center and 3 inch narrow, leathery leaves. In nature it grows as a shrub or small tree to 10 feet high. However, it makes a fine container plant, where its size can be controlled with judicious pruning. Try growing it as a 2 foot container specimen. It starts blooming at a young age and for most of the year, with the flowers holding on for a few days. Grows well in full sun to light shade. It's native to sandy coastal areas of Brazil and Venezuela, so it's tolerant of tropical seacoast conditions, such as wind, drought, and salt air. It's frost tender, so winter protection is necessary in colder climates, with a minimum temperature of 40F. It's well adapted to subtropical and tropical gardens. USDA zones 10 - 12. Clusiaceae

Clusia rosea 'Nana'

Small Leafed Clusia, Dwarf Pitch Apple



Clusia rosea Nana

$9.95  

Small leathery, pear-shaped leaves on compact, rounded shrub, with small light pink flowers. Popular for landscape use in tropical climates where it can be used as a low-growing shrub or ground cover. As a moderate grower, preferring full to part sun, it grows 2 feet high and spreads 2 to 3 feet wide. It even can be made into a bonsai. Native to tropical America.

We previously sold this as Clusia guttifera, which is evidently a larger growing dwarf more closely resembling Clusia rosea in form. Clusia rosea 'Nana' is the name Florida nurseries use for this plant. Both Clusia guttifera and Clusia rosea 'Nana' names have not been verified by botanists. Clusiaceae
