(Chioccoca pinetorum)

The Snowberry is native to South Florida and thrives throughout the Bahamas and West Indies, where it is referred to as Milkberry. The low scrambling shrub can reach a height of 10 feet, if given a support to climb upon. The fragrant tiny, delicate yellow, bell-shaped flowers are about one-half an inch long, and display in clusters. The common name used for this shrub refers to the ovoid, sparkling white berries that follow the delightful flowers.
