REMARKS

This is one of three Bursera's in Curaçao and only to be found on the ABC (Aruba, Bonaire and Curaçao) islands! Like its cousins it has a beautiful trunk. Excellent plant for dry garden landscaping. One of the first trees to drop its leaves at the beginning of the dry season. For more information see: 'De inheemse bomen van de Benedenwindse Eilanden', ISBN: 99904-61-00-7.
