Boswellia sacra is the source of frankincense resin, the sacred incense made most famous by the Bible. In Arabia and the Horn of Africa where this tree grows, the native villagers “tap” the trunks to let the fragrant exudate ooze out. A very rare plant in cultivation. It has the reputation of being difficult, but can be fairly simple if given enough water.
