Ehretia

Ehretia

 

a genus of evergreen or deciduous trees or shrubs of the family Boraginaceae. The leaves are simple and alternate. The small, usually white flowers are pentamerous and gathered in panicled or corymbose inflorescences. The fruit is a succulent drupe. There are 50 species, distributed in the tropics and sub-tropics, primarily in the eastern hemisphere. Some species are cultivated as ornamentals. Three species are cultivated in the USSR—in the Caucasus and the Crimea. The most promising of the three is E. acuminata, a low tree with shiny oblong or oval leaves and dense panicles of white flowers.
