This large shrub/small tree is found on Lee, Dade and Monroe counties in Florida. It is ranked as rare and threatened. When in bloom a jasmine-like fragrance fills the air. Slow growing and does not transplant well. A true gem of a Florida native plant.

Very positive for South Florida. Strong, compact, slow grower, takes a long time to flower (took mine about 10 years) but now is covered with small white flowers. Grew from 2 ft to 5 ft in about that time. Unfortunately hard to find. My kind of tree!
