My 4 year old has begun peeling, and I'd like to know if this is normal? For this tree?
Simpson's Stopper (Myrcianthes fragrans)

I've heard it called Simpson's Stopper, Twinberry, and I'm just now seeing another name of Naked-Wood. Hadn't heard of that one before, but I'm wondering if this is how it may have gotten that name.

I'm not seeing any pests, so my fingers are crossed that this is a natural occurrence?
Thanks for looking!
