Calophyllum inophyllum, also known as Alexandrian laurel, is a stunning evergreen plant native to various regions. Its popularity as an ornamental plant arises from its decorative leaves, fragrant flowers, and spreading crown. Growing up to 60 ft in height, this low-branching and slow-growing tree is widely cultivated in tropical regions worldwide. It tolerates varied kinds of soil, coastal sand, clay, or even degraded soil. Its wood is hard and strong and has been used in construction or boatbuilding. Moreover, its seeds are used to produce thick, dark green tamanu oil for medicinal or hair grease. The sap of the tree is poisonous and is used to make poison arrows in Samoa. Calophyllum inophyllum is an adaptive plant, with moderate to high drought and salinity tolerance. It is also used in biodiesel production due to the fatty acid methyl esters derived from its seed oil.
