Wild coffee is a native shrub that makes for a versatile addition to your landscape in southern Florida. This lovely, graceful shrub that produces red berries similar to coffee beans will attract lots of birds in your garden.
As a member of the family Rubiacea, the shiny evergreen leaves have very deeply impressed veins. The tiny white blooms resemble little white stars that will soon attract butterflies.
This is a plant that can take full sun and is drought resistant.
Currently in bloom in the Butterfly & Falling Waters Gardens located at the Sarasota Garden Club, 1131 Boulevard of the Arts, at Sarasota Garden Club.
