Clusia sp.

Clusia is a New World genus that ranges from Florida to Southern Brazil with an estimated 250-300 species.  The specimen at SCBG was accessioned as Clusia rosea but the flowers do not match that description.  There appears to be a similar specimen in Barboa Park, San Diego County with the same Clusia rosea name.  If anyone can enlighten us on its real name please contact the staff.  Photos by Laurel Woodley
