COMMON NAME: Campeche / Logwood
UNIQUE CHARACTERISTICS: Campeche is a fast growing ornamental tree that can reach up to 50 feet in height, and up to 5 feet in diameter! The pinnate leaves consist of several pairs of reverse heart-shaped leaflets. The leaves can vary color and in size from 0.4 inches to 4 inches depending on environmental factors such as sunlight, substrate, and available nutrients. Showy yellow fragrant flowers appear throughout the year. The tree trunk and branches are thorned and become more gnarled with age, lending to it’s attractive appearance. The wood of the tree is heavy and extremely hard and dense. Freshly cut wood will readily sink in water. As bonsai the hard wood lends itself to Jin & Shari. Campeche likes full sun, don’t let the soil dry out and keep away from freezing temps.
