Nashia inaguensis - Moujean Tea, Bahamas Berry
Moujean Tea, Bahamas Berry, Pineapple Verbena. Evergreen shrub, native to the island of Inagua in the Bahamas. It is often used as a bonsai plant due to its miniaturized features. Tiny white flowers are borne in clusters in summer. It prefers full sun, warmth and high humidity. Wants to be consistently moist to wet and never, never dry. If grown indoors it will appreciate warm feet during winter (try a heat mat). 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. A good choice for a small topiary or bonsai.
