Similar species - Elaeocarpus Decipiens (Japanese Blueberry). The seed of Rudraksh tree has been given a very special place and it is credited with mystical and divine properties. It is said that the plant of Rudraksh is originated from the tear drops of Lord Shiva. The word Rudraksh is a Sanskrit compound consisting of the name Rudra (the name of Lord Shiva) and Aksha which means eye, tear. As per the vedic scriptures Rudraksh can nullify the effects of malefic planets to a great extent. Before the seeds are dried, they are a deep rich blue, dried they become brown and are used as prayer beads. It is said that the seed of Rudraksh contains the secrets of entire evolution of the cosmos within it. No other necklace or bead is so auspicious and powerful as Rudraksh.

Elaeocarpus is a tall shrub or small tree which can reach 32-50ft in height but is usually much smaller in gardens. It is the most commonly grown member of the genus and is popular for its size, attractive flowers and colorful blue berries. It is adaptable to many climate zones provided water is available. It is not demanding as to soils but sands and waterlogged areas are not favored. Plants will grow in full sun to heavy shade. Small plants require regular watering, then as the plant matures in the ground, it becomes drought tolerant.

In early summer Elaeocarpus serratus begins to form flower buds on long racemes. By late summer these become strings of delicate, lacy, white flowers.

The tree is harvested from the wild, and sometimes also cultivated, for its edible fruit and medicinal applications.

The seed of most species in this genus is covered by a hard, woody shell and can be very slow and erratic to germinate, sometimes taking 2 years or more.
