Description for Guaiac

Guaiacum officinale, commonly known as rough bark lignum-vitae, guaiac wood or gaiacwood, is a species of tree in the caltrop family, Zygophyllaceae, that is native to the Caribbean and the northern coast of South America.

The tree is essentially evergreen throughout most of its native range. The leaves are compound, 2.5 to 3 cm in length, and 2 cm wide. Flowers are showy, to 2.5 cm across, bluish purple, fading to white.

The flowers have five petals which yield a bright yellow-orange fruit with red flesh and black seeds.

Planting and care

Fill a 4 to 6 inch pot with a soilless seed starting the potting mix. Use a pot that has at least one drainage hole in the bottom. Prepare one pot for each lignum vitae seed.
