Macaranga tanarius, commonly known as Blush Macaranga, Nasturtium Tree, David's Heart, or Parasol Leaf Tree, is a shrub or bushy tree that can reach up to 12 meters tall. It is easily recognized for its round veiny leaves, and yellow-green flowers that form on panicles in the months of October to January. This plant is native to South East Asia, Thailand, Papua New Guinea, South China, Taiwan, and eastern Australia, and is commonly seen as a pioneer species in disturbed rainforest areas. It is an attractive ornamental tree that provides interesting leaves and grows well in disturbed areas. Its bark contains tannins that are used as a colorant, and it is used to dye nets, mats, and as a leather preservative in tanning. The bark is also used as a coloring and flavoring agent for a local sugarcane rum brewed in Apayao province, Luzon. Try adding this unique plant to your collection today!
