Bahama Coffee, Psychotria ligustrifolia, can grow to 4 ft or more over an extended period of time. Bahama Coffee plants in cultivation are often thought of as a dwarf species of coffee, but without pruninng, they will eventually get as big as other coffee species. It has attractive, formal, dark green, shiny foliage and small creamy white flowers in the spring followed by red berries in the fall and winter. It is a beautiful shrub that works in partial sun to shade and naturalistic to formal settings. This plant's natural distribution is south Florida, but seems adaptable to the warmer areas that other Psychotria species grow. Attracts pollinators, including Zebra Heliconia (Longwing) butterflies, and songbirds.
