Bahama Berry  Nashia inaguensis

Bahama berry (not to be confused with Bahama Betty, which is, of course, a completely different topic) is naturally found in scrublands on the island of Inagua in the Eastern Bahamas, where it crawls along in sunny, rocky outcroppings, semi-protected from steady high winds.

A loose shrub with informal branching to 7' high, it manages to work in formal situations.  It takes trimming well.  In fact, the bonsai people enjoy working with it, due to its miniaturized features.  Fragrant citrusy foliage and tiny flowers cause crowds of nectar-seekers to behave like paparazzi who have just come across Angelina Jolie at the supermarket in her nightgown.  

The flowers (and the berries) can be considered to be somewhere in size between tiny and miniscule, but are big enough add a charming, early-morning fragrance to your garden.

At right, bahama berry is planted with Ernodea littoralis Golden Creeper, making a simple, small-textured combination.

Each flower is about 2mm in diameter. 

It's a good thing they aren't bigger, or else the fragrance would be overwhelming.

 
   
   

We usually have a quantity of them in 3-gal. containers; sometimes in 7-gal..
