Bahama Coffee, Psychotria ligustrifolia

You might find Bahama Coffee growing wild in a rockland hammock, but it’s a great landscape choice for buffer plantings, small hedges and shady, moist locations. In the landscape, it likes light to moderate shade, moist soils with organic matter and regular irrigation. Plant at existing grade. Wildlife use Bahama Wild Coffee for cover, birds and small mammals eat the fruit, and the flowers are used as a nectar source by pollinators.
