Japanese Raisin Tree

Hovenia dulcis

RHAMNACEAE, The Buckthorn family

This is a strange tree with pretty heart-shaped leaves and graceful twigs. I like the name of it. The fruit is actually the receptacle or stem of the fruit, but I never seen it. In spring it has fragrant white flowers. Northwoods/One Green World grows this tree for the nursery, and I’m planning to put it in the display I’m making to get ready for the edible landscaping seminar I’m doing this fall.

About Mulysa

I love my work as a landscape designer and artist. When I'm not planning homesteads or working in the studio, you'll find me hiking, photographing, gardening, baking, cooking vegetarian meals with friends, reading and working on sustainability issues...with my baby on my hip in Portland, Oregon.
