Description

Elaeocarpus grandiflorus is an evergreen tree, up to 20 m tall. The epithet name is derived from Latin words, ‘grandis’ meaning large and ‘florus’ means flowered, which refer to its large flower. This species distributed from Myanmar, Thailand, Indo-China, Sumatra, Peninsular Malaysia, Java, Lesser Sunda Islands (Lombok) and the Philippines. In Peninsular Malaysia, E. grandiflorus is locally known from Kedah where it can be found in lowland forest to lower montane forest at about 100–1,500 m altitude (Kiew et al., 2018).

Elaeocarpus grandiflorus is often branching ‘terminalian’ with long and short shoots. The twigs are glabrous with measure 2.5-5 mm thick. The stipules are often tough and shiny at about 1-2 mm long. Its leaves develop tightly crowded to loosely group towards twig tips. The racemes grow among or just behind leaves at about 3-9 cm long. The flowers are 5-merous with creamy white petals and narrowed in lower third but not narrow into a claw. The sepals are usually pink and falling at the same time as petals and stamens. The fruits are red, oblong measuring about 2.5-3 cm long (Kiew et al., 2018).
