1.  Description

The clove tree is an evergreen that grows to a height ranging from 8–12 m, having large leaves and sanguine flowers in numerous groups of terminal clusters. The flower buds are at first of a pale color and gradually become green, after which they develop into a bright red, when they are ready for collecting.

2.  Obtainment

Moderately difficult. This sort of plant requires a hot climate to grow -- most of the world's production was centered around the Indian Ocean (e.g., Madagascar, Sri Lanka, Indonesia) prior to the apocalypse. Nonetheless, it may be found in the Caribbean islands, Mexico, etc.
