(Dwarf Holly, Miniature Holly, Singapore Holly)

(Acerola, Barbados Cherry, West Indian Cherry)

Small red fruits that are rich in vitamin C, but usually quite tart, appear on the branches of the West Indian cherry in summer and fall. Often confused with and called the Barbados cherry (Malphigia glabra), this species' leaves, flowers and fruits are smaller in size, and the branches carry long spur-like branchlets. West Indian cherry's native range is much larger: the West Indies, Central America and northern South America to Peru and Venezuela.

(Drummond's Wax Mallow, Texas Mallow, Turk's-cap)

This huge, fast-growing, red flowered shrub offers a unique form of hibiscus blossom that never opens completely. Its curling, clasped petals give it one of its common names, Turk’s-cap.
