Local nameombu;ombú;umbú
LocationSanta Maria Maior, Lisbon, Portugal

Phytolacca dioica, commonly known as ombú, is a massive evergreen tree native to the Pampa of South America. As its specific epithet suggests, it is dioecious, with male and female flowers on separate plants. It has an umbrella-like canopy that spreads to a diameter of 12 to 15 meters and can attain a height of 12 to 18 meters. Because it is derived from herbaceous ancestors, its trunk consists of anomalous secondary thickening rather than true wood.
