This plant has been recently renamed from Elaeodendron to Cassine, but still old references use ancient name. It is endemics to Mascareigne islands.Young plants have elongated-linear leaves with red margins but change to green elliptic oval shape leaves on mature trees. Also sold as a decorative and indoor as pot plants.One of the rare Mascareigne plants species which is not threatened and rather common in all altitudes of native forests.

Small to medium tree from Madagascar. Saw an exceptionally large one in Hawaii, where it was officially labeled an exceptional tree of Hawaii due to its age and size (about 40' tall) in Foster Gardens. Shiny, small leaves.
