Bumelia thornei

False Buckthorn, Thorne's

Bumelia (Sideroxylon) thornei is a rare small tree with small oval leaves, rather crooked or pendulous thorny branches, and black raisin size fruits. It grows naturally in moist to wet soil but is adaptable and appears to be pest-free. It is known only from a few localities in Georgia and Florida. Like most of the other species of Bumelia or Sideroxylon, this species was first introduced into cultivation and made available to gardeners by Woodlanders.
