A wonderful caudiciform tree from Oaxaca, Mexico, with red, peeling bark and delicate ovate leaves. Forms an interesting,complex caudex and is a wonderful bonsai candidate. Highly aromatic, this tree is also known as the Mexican Frankincense Tree. Related to Boswellia, the bark, leaves, and fruit smell strongly of Frankincense.
Exact plant shown. The photo does not do the plant justice - there's a nice root system in that 5 gallon pot. It's large and mature. Shipped bare root.
Please pot and water right away; otherwise, they will enter into a state of shock. Leaf drop is normal. Watering will help!
