This is a nice low evergreen shrub with showy flowers in the spring and small pretty little shiny leaves. It is found in nearly all of Florida. It makes a nice wildflower, but as a short-lived perennial it has a relatively short lifespan. Growing only 1-2' tall it makes a nice low border hedge. It likes part shade to full sun. The flowers are pink to white, berries change colors and the fruit is blue/black when ripe with an appearance of a powdery fruit like that on grapes. Solitary plants rarely fruit. Although difficult to germinate, it propagates from seed. It is not salt tolerant - it will tolerate salty wind but not direct salt spray. This plant likes moist to dry well draining sandy acidic soil. Birds and other wildlife love the fruit.
