On a walk around our neighborhood, we found this curious fruit shrub. It looked like a ground cover plant, but the red fruits made it “sus” (aka. suspicious, as the kids say these days). Google lens identified it as Natal Plum, which is a flowering fruit shrub native to South Africa and they are commonly used as landscape plants in warm weather.
Information about this plant describe them as a plum-type fruit: they are edible after two full years of maturity, but the leaves are toxic to consume. Also, this plant blooms white fragrant flowers. What a lovely shrub to grow and have in one’s yard! My kind of flowering shrub.
Thank you Cee for hosting this challenge and readers for stopping by! Appreciate you all.
