Nashia inaguensis

Nashia inaguensis

Common name moujean tea; Bahama berry
Family verbenaceae
Life cycle shrub (Z9-11)
Flowers cream (late summer-fall)
Size to 7'
Light sun-part shade
Cultural notes ordinary garden soil, not too dry

Evergreen shrub native to the Bahamas, with small, crinkly-glossy leaves. Both flowers and leaves are fragrant, and the berries that follow are used to flavor a tea. I bought this on a whim from the Peckerwood Garden sale area and stuck it in our rock garden because it is still a small plant and I like the leaves. If it survives the winter, I'll decide what to do with it in the long run.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
