    Hovenia dulcis
    Oriental raisin tree

     A perfect ornamental with a multitude of uses including bonsai, container growing and as a tropical. Beautiful glossy green leaves are deciduous and drop in the fall while green. White-green flowers burst forth in the spring with a sweet fragrance followed by small brown drupes that ripen to bright red and taste like raisins. The bark is ridged with valleys of brown making it look aged and perfect for bonsai culture. Likes sun to part shade.
