Picramnia pentandra is an endangered native which only occurs in Miami-Dade County in Florida. However, it also occurs in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. It is a small tree, 12-15′ tall and a very narrow crown. The tree is dioecious, meaning there are male and female trees. The flowers of both the male and female trees are inconspicuous on long pendulous spikes. Fruits form along the flower spikes of the female trees. They are small round fruits starting out red and ripening to black. This is an excellent food for birds, which disperse the seeds. Typically this tree grows in shady to filtered sunlight on well drained sites.
