Salvadora is a genus of tree or shrub in the plant family Salvadoraceae. There are five species, including Salvadora australis, Salvadora oleiodes and Salvadora persica. It is native to the middle east.
It grows as small tree up to 7 metres high, but its branches commonly hang down to the ground, making it look more like a shrub than a tree.
Distribution and habitat
Salvadora is native to the hottest, dryest areas of the Middle East.
