Ehretia anacua (Anacua)

Anacua

Ehretia anacua

South Texas native that is evergreen south of San Antonio due to the light winters, but semi-evergreen anywhere else. It is also called the Sandpaper Tree due to the rough texture of the leaves. 


Ideal flowering tree for alkaline areas, however it will tolerate acidic soils. Desired for its showy and fragrant star shaped flowers that appear in the spring throughout summer. It develops clusters of orange fruits in July that attract wildlife in the fall, however can be messy for walking paths and parking lots. 


Anacua naturally develops several trunks, often forming a twisted gnarling shape as it ages. Relatively pest and disease free.
