    Description

Cordia monoica - Sandpaper Saucer Berry

This listing is for 5 seeds.

Cordia monoica, the Sandpaper Saucer Berry, is a shrub native to South Africa and Zimbabwe.

Growing as a small tree or multistemmed shrub, it is a common feature in its native range.  It gets up to 4 metres tall and has a similar spread.  The leaves have a very rough surface, which leads the common name given.

Flowers white, cream or pale yellow in dense terminal heads; petals distinctly reflexed; calyces and stalks covered in yellowish hairs.  The flowers are fragrant.  Fruit fleshy, ovoid, orange-yellow when ripe, cupped in the persistent remains of the calyx - giving rise to the name Saucer Berry when referring to this genus.

Not overly hardy, it may be grown outside in Zone 9b and up, elsewhere use as a container shrub, which can be brought in during the coldest weather.  It can also be used in conservatories or greenhouses and would also serve as an unusual houseplant.
