I came upon a wild plant in Tradewinds Park in Coconut Creek, Florida, a little northwest of Fort Lauderdale, while on spring vacation. It is a good-looking evergreen shrub that is native from central Florida down into the West Indies. It grows in sunny to light shade sites with moist soil that is neutral to slightly alkaline pH. It bears nice small white flowers in spring and summer and small red to maroon berries in clusters that is eaten by birds.
