Asiatic Mangrove

( Rhizophora mucronata )

Available individually or as part of XfrogPlants Asia

The Asiatic Mangrove grows on the banks of tidal creeks, around estuaries and in areas flooded by daily high tides. Like all Rhizophora species, the trunk is supported by arching stilt-roots which raise the tree above the water. This species seeds quickly and is widespread throughout the coasts of the Indian Ocean.
