Annatto is a shrub to small tree reaching 15 to 20 feet tall, native to Central and South America. Annatto has large leaves, with red new growth, and pale pink flowers full of stamens. The bee-attracting flowers are followed by bright red, ovoid seed pods with soft spines. The seeds are used to create orange-red dye for food and cosmetics. Plant this in full sun to partial shade.
