coriania (Divi-divi) is a medium size tree from Aruba, very often seen in
pictures with windswept shapes near the ocean. The Divi-Divi is quite easy.
There is nothing really special in their care. Perhaps just some protection
if the temperature dips bellow 35° F. The basic requirements are full
to partial sun, average water, and fertilizer. Divi-Divi flowers during the
warm weather, but the flowers are not very showy. The really beauty of the
plant resides on their delicate fine leaves. It has beautiful reddish/pink
new growth and the shapes that can be achieved by trimming, thus making it
one of the favorite trees for bonsai training.
