Myrcianthes fragrans : Simpson Stopper

Simpson Stopper can be kept as a tall bushy shrub or allowed to grow into an understory tree.

As it ages, the undulating growth pattern of the trunks and main limbs becomes apparent.

They gradually shed the outer gray skin revealing a rich cinnamon colored bark.

The white fragrant flowers appear on and off all year...

...followed by yellow berries that turn orange and then bright red. The red ones are edible and tasty.
