Mahkota Dewa, a herbal tea

Mahkota dewa translates roughly as Gods Crown, its scientific name is Phaleria macrocarpa and it originates on the island of Papua, to the east of Indonesia.

Makhota Dewi is cauliflorous, this refers to it flowering and fruiting directly from the trunk and main branches. This creates a beautiful garden effect and "4 season beauty", a japanese garden design concept ensuring all year around beauty and interest through constant change.
It is a well sized tree for inner city gardens that wont overgrow or interfere with infrastructure.
The green fruit follow the masses of flowers.
Phaleria macrocarpa always appears fresh and green and free of pests and diseases, another feature of a superior ammenity plant for city gardens
