Bursera fagaroides – Torchwood Copal (2″pot) (Email for availability)


This is a beautiful hardy caudiciform tree commonly known as ‘Frankincense of the Americas’. The species is often used as an ornamental plant that can be bonsaied. More commonly, it is used for its very fragrant resin that smells similar to frankincense. It bears non-edible fruit that splits open when ripe to release a red seed, which are eaten by birds. The trunk swells, retaining water in preparation for drought.
