The Dwarf Simpsons Stopper, scientifically known as Myrcianthes fragrans 'Dwarf', is a compact and low-maintenance evergreen shrub native to Florida and the Caribbean. This attractive plant is known for its fragrant flowers, glossy foliage, and ornamental berries.
The Dwarf Simpsons Stopper is a slow-growing, compact shrub that typically reaches a height of 3-4 feet with a similar spread, making it an ideal choice for smaller gardens and landscape borders. Hardy in USDA zones 9-11, this plant thrives in well-drained, sandy soils and can tolerate a range of light conditions, from full sun to partial shade. Its adaptability and low-maintenance nature make it an excellent option for various landscaping applications, such as foundation plantings, hedges, and as an accent plant.
One of the most appealing features of the Dwarf Simpsons Stopper is its fragrant flowers. The plant produces small, white, star-shaped flowers that emit a pleasant, sweet fragrance. These flowers appear in clusters during late spring to early summer and attract a variety of pollinators, including bees and butterflies. The charming, fragrant blooms add a delightful sensory element to gardens and landscapes.
Following the flowering season, the Dwarf Simpsons Stopper produces small, round fruits that start as green and ripen to a bright red color. These ornamental berries persist on the plant for an extended period, providing a striking contrast to the glossy, dark green leaves. Although the fruit is not generally consumed by humans, it serves as an important food source for birds and other wildlife, adding an additional layer of ecological value to the plant.
