Bursera fagaroides ( Fragrant Elephant Tree )
( Autumn ) Perhaps this is the nicest species of the genus, it has a thick caudex and leaves that release a delightful citrus odour when crushed. Plants remain dormant much of the year, leafing out only with the onset of hot summer weather. They defoliate in Autumn, making an attractive display as the leaves change to yellow, orange and red.
