This small shrub has arching dark brown stems with green leaves and pink flowers followed by red berries throughout the year. Excellent bonsai or house plant specimen. The creeping stems and sometimes exposed roots can create really interesting shapes.

It is native to the West Indies and is also found in northern South America, Central America and Jamaica. Acerola is the fruit of the tree. It is bright red and 1 to 2 cm in diameter with several small seeds and has an appearance similar to the European Cherry. Acerola is also known as "Antilles Cherry" or "Barbados Cherry."
