|The Logwood, (also known as Bloodwood, botanical name Haematoxylon campechianum) is native to Mexico and parts of Central America.
It has thorns, so handle
with care. It cannot tolerate temperatures below 40, and prefers to be in the high 50's & above.
It was the main source for purple textile dye in
Europe from the 16th century until chemical dyes began being produced, but it is still used in the manufacture of purple dye today.
It is also used for histological (blood & tissue work) stain. Because of its tiny leaves and rapid growth (by bonsai standards) it is a great subject
for any bonsai hobbyist.
