Randia (plant)

provided by wikipedia EN

Randia, commonly known as indigoberry,[3] is a mostly Neotropical genus of shrubs or small trees in the Rubiaceae. The International Plant Names Index (IPNI) lists a total of 738 names for the genus, synonyms included. Several Australian species have been reassigned to the genus Atractocarpus. These include the garden plants Atractocarpus chartaceus and A. fitzalanii.

Carl Linnaeus retained the name Randia, applied by Houston to commemorate Isaac Rand.[4]

Species of this genus are generally dioecious, with separate male and female plants, although exceptions exist. They are trees, shrubs, and lianas, and may be deciduous or evergreen.[5]
