Clusia rosea 'Nana'

 Dwarf Pitch Apple, Dwarf Autograph Tree

What a cool little plant. A dwarf selection of the common tropical shrub. Green waxy leaves are about an 1" across. Full sun or bright shade. Cold sensitive, dislikes temperatures below 40 F. Popular as a tropical bonsai. Gets aerial roots for a mangrove look, the pretty small light pink flowers are showy. I've never seen fruit on this dwarf form, but the full size does get a small apple-like fruit that opens when ripe to expose a star shaped interior. The term autograph tree comes from the ability to carve letters into the leaves, which darken and stay until the leaf falls off.
