I have another mystery plant. The person who bought it said she got it at Giant Tiger and whatever label it had was lost in transit. Looks to me like one of those confusingly tagged as a 'tropical plant' that one often encounters in discount stores
Can anyone help?
Thanks,
John F

Compare to this one, Ardisia crenata:

Yes, that resolves it. Invasive, and not something that we would want in the Pollinator Patch in our Community Gardens. So, a houseplant to give away.
Many thanks

I can understand only wanting certain plants in a particular garden setting. Good luck with the pollinators!

Just for trivia's sake, Ardisias can not survive in Canada, no risk of invasion. BONAP does not show any species of Ardisia being able to survive colder climates:
