|Operculicarya decaryi originates from Madagascar. It’s an easy plant to grow especially in the San Diego area. I grow mine outdoors in full sun, year-round. They can also be grown in part shade. They are adaptable and can be grown from both seed and cuttings. Operculicarya decaryi is a small tree in the cashew or sumac family, the Anacardiaceae, that has a thick bumpy and twisted trunk, zigzagging branches and alternate odd-pinnate leaves with tiny shiny dark green rounded leaflets, that are often beautifully tinged red in cooler weather. In its native habitat in the Toliara Province of south-west Madagascar this plant is a drought deciduous upright tree to nearly 30 feet tall with a 3 foot wide trunk but more often it is seen in cultivation as a semi-evergreen small tree or even a bonsai specimen with its decorative trunk or even roots exposed in very small containers. Mature plants have small reddish to brown flowers at the tips of the branches in late winter that are not showy with male and female flowers on separate plants (dioecious). Small globular fruit age from yellow-orange to red on female plants - seed is viable only when male and female plants flower together. Plant in full to partial sun in a well-drained soil and water only occasionally in summer months less in winter, a bit more regularly if in a container but even then, it requires very little water - what could be better than a drought tolerant container plant! In cold winters plants will be more or less deciduous but will remain evergreen in warmer locations.
