Seagrape, Coccoloba uvifera
Noted for its high salt tolerance, they are native to coastal areas but do well inland too. This big leaf shrub/tree has colossal, dark green glossy leaves with reddish veins. Great for tall, full screening or as a lone tree that can be pruned up on the bottom to expose attractive tan trunks. They have fragrant blooms that produce grape-like edible fruit used to make jelly. Cold hardy to only the lower 30’s this tropical plant will get significant leaf burn in a hard frost.
