A very small genus of tropical tree which was once referred to (and still often listed as) Carmona. The most widely known Ehretia species is the Fukien tea, a tropical shrub originating in Southern China and other parts of Southeast Asia. It is very popular for bonsai in China, but not a traditional favorite in Japan. It can be grown outdoors in warm climates, but is quite popular as an indoor bonsai.

Ehretia amoena - small tree, densely branched, olive green leathery leaves with hairs, white to pale mauve sweet smelling flowers in lax heads, fleshy edible fruits (not tasty), ethnomedical.

Ehretia obtusifolia - edible fleshy glossy orange to black fruits.

Keep well watered, reducing watering only slightly in winter. Never allow Ehretia to stand in water, or allow the soil to dry out completely.
