East Indian or White Sandalwood

Santalum album

This plant is not on the Australian Noxious Weed List

The East Indian Sandalwood has been cultivated and used in folk medication for at least 2000 years. The plant’s native habitat is in the dry, warm areas of India but managed plantations exist in Burma, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines and north-western Australia. The Indian Government has banned the export of Sandalwood in order to protect very over exploited forests and declared all trees over a specific girth to be the property of the Government regardless of where they are grown. The result is managed plantations in nearby countries.
The Sandalwood is a small tree growing 4 to 9 metres tall and known to survive 10 years. It is a hemi-parasitic tree (like all the Santalum family) and will attach itself to 30 or more species for the support it needs but does no harm to the host plant. It prefers sandy, gravelly red soils but will grow in a wide range of soils as well.

Offered as a packet of 5 seeds with grownotes.
