These plants stay neat and compact and seem very happy growing in containers or the garden. We have a small garden area (shown) with a grouping of these plants happily growing in one bed. I have my acid loving plants growing with a 50/50 mix of perlite and peat moss. I keep them watered evenly and give them cold coffee grounds and left over cold coffee weekly.
The flowers of the Blackberry Jam Plant/Randia formosa form into small fruits. The petite snowy white flowers remind me of tiny Gardenia blossoms. The flowers will produce small green fruits. Once the fruit matures and turns yellow you can open it up and find the Blackberry 'jam' inside.
All live plants are taken for Hawaii State Agricultural Inspection before shipment. Live Plants usually ship MONDAYS, sometimes Tuesdays if needed.
Listing price includes shipping and Hawaii State Agricultural Inspection.
