Sea Grape, Coccoloba uvifera, is variable, but can reach up to 35 to 40 ft. in height. It is an evergreen shrub or tree with nearly round, large red-veined leaves. They produce spikes of whitish flowers; and edible, reddish fruits which hang in grape-like clusters on female plants. This is an iconic large shrub or tree from coastal settings. Leaves turn bronze to red in the winter. Plant Sea Grape in in well drained soil in full sun to partial sun. It can be used as a specimen plant or tree and hedging. It is great for high wind and salt exposed beach front or other coastal exposed locations. The leaf is large and can create a great deal of debris, so plant it where this will not become a problem.
