Add a touch of the tropics to your landscape with the Clusia tree, a versatile and visually striking plant. Often hailed as the "Autograph Tree," Clusia is renowned for its thick, leathery leaves that can be etched with writings or designs. It's an ideal choice for adding a lush, exotic feel to any yard or as a statement piece in patio containers.

The Clusia tree is celebrated for its robust, glossy leaves that stay vibrant throughout the year, creating a dense canopy of green. Its ability to withstand harsh conditions, including coastal environments, makes it a favored choice for a variety of landscapes. During summer, Clusia blooms with small, attractive flowers, adding a subtle charm to its already impressive foliage.

At Moon Valley Nurseries, we specialize in cultivating an array of unique trees, including the Clusia. Our commitment to quality ensures each Clusia tree is grown from superior rootstock, leading to healthier, more resilient plants. We avoid the common pitfalls of rapid growth, focusing instead on the long-term vitality of each tree.

Select the Clusia tree for its durability, low maintenance, and tropical flair. Whether you're looking to create a privacy screen, windbreak, or simply enhance the beauty of your outdoor space, the Clusia is a standout choice. Experience the allure of this tropical gem, expertly grown by Moon Valley Nurseries, and transform your landscape into a tropical paradise.

Every time a plant is watered, the soil should be thoroughly saturated to a depth of at least 2 to 3 feet and at least as wide as a tree well. Very slow and deep watering is always recommended. During periods of extreme heat, we advise at least 1 additional time per week of watering for all varieties. For periods of heavy rain (1/2” or more) adjust accordingly by possibly skipping a watering session for that time.
