Wikstroemia retusa
.
Family: Thymelaeaceae (Mezereum)
Distribution: Japan (Ryukyu Islands)
Description: Wistroemia retusa is a very ornamental small shrub native to Japan, Taiwan and the Philippines. Its sculpural habit, compact foliage, bright red fruits and small cream-colored foliage are all attractive. It prefers full sun and good drainage, but does best as a container plant in South Florida. Its performance in South Florida soils has been inconsistent so far, so it is probably best to keep it in a container.
