This is a Florida native plant. Fast growth rate. Very tolerant of drought conditions, but can also be grown in moist conditions. Makes a nice screen/hedge or a fine small tree. Blooms off and on throughout the year with small "shaving brush" type, very fragrant flowers. The leaves are fragrant when crushed. Birds are attracted to the red berries. Requires no care once established. No problems with pests or diseases.
