Notes for Identification: Source: floridata mahoe is grown as an ornamental throughout the tropics in both the new world and old world, hence the many common names. It is especially popular in australia. Mahoe is salt tolerant and produces flowers almost all year long. It makes an attractive specimen tree in beach-front settings. warning mahoe is listed as a category ii pest plant by the florida exotic pest plant council, which means that it has the potential to be invasive and to disrupt native plant communities by displacing native species. (category i species are known to be invasive. ) mahoe is not on florida's list of prohibited plants, however, and is sometimes sold by commercial nurseries. We do not recommend using this tree in florida landscapes.
