  • Regular price $30.00


This is a naturally occurring hybrid of bursera fagaroides and bursera microphylla from a locale near the Waterman Mountains in Central America. Pretty uncommon! Leaves are longer and a bit wider than microphylla, like an elongated narrow fagaroides leaf. A wonderful caudiciform tree from Baja California and the Sonoran Desert. Delicate, tiny, fern-like leaves adorn this graceful plant and puts out red/orange berries in the spring. Smooth and peeling orange/beige bark. 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. 4" pot size. Rooted cuttings, getting around 5-6" tall now. Shipped bare root.
