Coccoloba pubescens

Grandleaf Seagrape, Tin Roof Tree
Family: Polygonaceae
Origin: Tropical America
Small tree 10-20 ftFull sunRegular waterWhite/off-white flowersOrnamental foliageSeaside, salt tolerant plant

Requiring full sun and sandy, well-drained soils, this plant is excellent for seaside locations since it is highly salt- and drought-tolerant. Plants should be well-watered until established and then should only require occasional pruning to control shape and develop structure. The contorted, twisting trunk (which can grow to 2 feet or greater in diameter) and upright branching habit makes this an interesting, picturesque shade tree or specimen planting.
