A seductive, brilliant purple, Logwood originates from the Americas; its natural range includes Mexico, Central America, Colombia, Venezuela and the Guyanas. Logwood was known as the "spiny tree" by the Aztecs because of its thorny, contorted trunk, which they used as a weapon. Logwood is not particularly lightfast, so keep from bright sunlight.
