    Description

    The genus Cordia contains about 250 species. They occur in tropical to warm temperate regions throughout the world, with the greatest diversity of species in the Neotropics (Wagner and others 1990). Cordia subcordata is apparently native to Malesia but has been spread throughout the Pacific and along Indian Ocean shores. The species can be found on seashores and adjacent lowlands from east Africa to Polynesia. Cordia subcordata closely resembles C. sebestena L., a better-known species frequently planted as an ornamental along tropical and subtropical coasts (Little and Skolmen 1989, Wagner and others 1990).
