Evergreen shrub, native to the east Caribbean islands, in particular the island of Inagua in the Bahamas, after which the species is named. In its native environment, the plant crawls along sunny, rocky outcroppings, semi-protected from steady high winds.

It is often used as a bonsai plant due to its miniaturized features. Tiny white flowers are borne in clusters in summer. The flowers form in clusters and are followed by reddish orange berries. It prefers full sun, warmth and high humidity. Even a brief spell of dryness can kill the plant. Wants to be consistently moist to wet and never, never dry. Another name is "I Dry-I Die" - unlike many tropicals that can be brought back from the brink of a dead wilt. Bahama berry likes it hot. If grown indoors it will appreciate warm feet during winter (try a heat mat).

It can be propagated from cuttings, preferably in the spring and early summer during warm nights. A decoction of the fragrant leaves, variously described as having the scent and flavor of citrus, vanilla, or pineapple, is used as an herbal tea.

Tiny dense fragrant foliage scented of pineapple when brushed. A good choice for a small topiary or bonsai.
