This plant, commonly known as the elephant tree (or torote blanco) of Baja California, is a member of the Anacardiaceae, even if it looks like it belongs in the Burseraceae. The leaves are pinnately divided and the trunk has white, exfoliating bark. This slow-growing species is excellent for bonsai. It is a winter grower, so beware and give it a summer rest. We are offering seedlings of this desirable species in 3-inch pots.
