Description

Annatto - Bixa orellana

A bushy evergreen tree to 30 feet, that is native to tropical america. Highly ornamental, with showy flowers giving way to the orange-red pods. The pulverized, brick-red seeds are the source of bixin, a dye.

These bushy shrubs to small trees are commonly used in the subtropics along roadways, planted in a line as a living, flowering fence. They make a handsome accent wherever there is room for their spreading form--in yards, in town and in the country. In the temperate north, they may be grown as a potted plant, taken indoors for the winter to protect from frost.

    20 seeds/pkt, Open Pollinated.
