Plant Species of the genus Brya

Information about this genus
Name: Brya
Cultivation: CULTIVATION: A tropical climate is vital for these trees, which soon suffer in prolonged cool conditions. Where the climate is suitable, Brya can be an attractive tree that flowers heavily, and nursery-grown plants are available in some areas. Propagate from seed, which should be pre-treated by rubbing on sandpaper then soaking in cold water.
Description: A genus of evergreen leguminous trees from the Caribbean, there are 4 species, 3 of which are endemic to Cuba. Although commonly known as ebony because of their dark heartwood, they are not related to the true ebony, Diospyros ebenum. Brya leaves are small, and sprout directly from the stems, without stalks. The flowers, which are broom-like, develop in the leaf axils.
