Forest & Kim Starr

(Common Lignum Vitae, Palo Santo)

Loved for its purple to blue-violet flowers that yield bright red fruits, lignum vitae is heat, drought and salt tolerant, making it stupendous as a specimen in the coastal tropics. A rounded evergreen tree from the northern coastline of South America and the Caribbean islands, it is extremely slow growing and has a crooked, knotty form that adds to its beauty. The wood is very dense and does not float.

The green to yellow-green glossy leaves are leathery and held on yellowish leaf stems (petioles)....

The wide, strap-shaped leaves of ‘Class’ are glossy, thin and flexible. They are arranged in a rosette that forms a reservoir, or vase, in which rainfall and leaf litter can...
