(Brazilwood, Indian Savin Tree, Peachwood)

Lustrous dark green foliage is the perfect background to see the pretty, long-lived yellow blossoms of peachwood in autumn and winter. An evergreen, frost-tender small tree with an interestingly rounded form, it is native to limestone soils of eastern Central America and islands of the Caribbean. Its stout trunks and branches have a nice corky bark that has scattered spiny thorns. Its heartwood is finely grained and tough, sometimes favored for making musical instruments.

Leathery and rich green,...

(Tea, Tea Camellia)

The leaves and buds of this evergreen Chinese tree are the source of the favorite beverage, tea. If left unpruned, a mature tree can reach a substantial size and typically has an upright habit and spreading crown. When grown for tea production, tea trees are severely pruned on a regular basis to keep them short and shrubby for easy harvest and heavier leaf production.

Tea trees have dark green, oval leaves that are leathery, glossy and have tiny teeth on the edges. Their central rib, or vein,...

(Rose Tea, Tea, Tea Camellia)

Blooming with pretty, pale-pink, fragrant flowers in autumn, ‘Rosea’ is a selection of its far more famous parent, the white-flowering camellia that gives us tea leaves. An evergreen tree with an upright to spreading habit, the parent species is native to China. When grown ornamentally (or yes, even for tea production), the plants are pruned to keep them in shrub-like form. Keep in mind that all tea plants, including ‘Rosea,’ are very slow growing.

This camellia has leathery, dark green, glossy...

(Chanel No.5 Tree, Perfume Tree, Ylang-Ylang)

Renowned for its breathtakingly fragrant blooms, this native of India and Southeast Asia is one of the tropic's finest flowering trees. It grows rapidly into a medium-sized tree with drooping to horizontal branches, smooth grayish-brown bark, and a rounded canopy.

The willow-like branches bear two alternating ranks of narrowly elliptic, medium- to dark-green leaves with lighter green undersides. Usually the leaves droop slightly, accentuating the tree's semi-weeping look. Intermittently throughout...

A stately tree with muscular gray branches and trunk, the European hornbeam has glossy green foliage and produces interesting strings of lobed, yellow-brown fruits in fall. This tall, oval-canopied deciduous tree is native to much of Europe and eastward into Asia Minor.

The leaves are oval and have unequal but doubled rows of teeth on their edges. Veins are very depressed and the upper leaf side is a dull, deep green and undersides a lighter shiny green. These leaves are held late into fall and...

A stately tree with gray branches and trunk, the upright European hornbeam has glossy green foliage and produces interesting strings of yellow-brown fruits in fall. This tall, oval-canopied deciduous tree is native to much of Europe and eastward into Asia Minor. Although named 'Fastigiata', the mature form of this selection is oval to pyramidal, not a tall, narrow, upright spire.

The leaves are oval and have unequal but doubled rows of teeth on their edges. Veins are very depressed and the upper...
