Plant Description: Miniature Holly

Malpighia coccigera is a species of flowering plant in the family Malpighiaceae.  It is commonly known as Singapore holly or dwarf holly because of the shape of its leaves. Its white flowers are followed by red berries, which are technically drupes. The fruit of Miniature Holly are favorite by birds and they disperse the seeds through droppings. It is grown as an ornamental plant and often used to make bonsai. Their small size makes them well suited for planting along a foundation. The fine texture contrasts nicely with medium and coarse-textured, taller shrubs. Their dense growth habit allows them to fill in in front of taller shrubs which may have become thin at the bottom.
