The Inkwood (Exothea paniculata) is a slow-growing tree with a slender dense crown that has glossy leaves and tiny fragrant blooms in spring and early summer. This tree produces red berries that ripen to a deep purple. Inkwood trees can grow up to 30 feet tall, and thrive in environments with anywhere from full sunlight, such as a residential backyard, to the partially shaded Tropical Hardwood Hammock its native to. The name stems from usage in the West Indies of the crushed fruits used to produce a dark ink.
