Gumbo Limbo (Bursera Simaruba) in nature, is a large tree (up to 70 feet) native to South Florida and South & Central America. Its exfoliating red bark give it an interesting appearance. More information below photos.
They are semi-deciduous both indoors and outdoors in climates where the temperature never goes below 40 degrees. In nature they produce edible berries that have many uses, and are a food source for wild parrots & other birds. They tend to produce low branches which should be removed as soon as they appear to maintain the shape of the bonsai.
