Limber caper shares characteristics with jamaican caper. It is a florida native found in coastal thickets and hammock margins. A small tree, shrub or vine; as it can reach 20 feet in height and has a somewhat irregularly-shaped crown. Evergreen leaves are simple, entire, oblong, 2-4 inches long with an orange-colored leaf stem and resemble bay leaves. Unlike jamaican caper, the leaf undersides are smooth. Flowers are borne on twig ends and are showy, pinkish white in color, fragrant and with extended stamens 1 1/2 inches long. Insect pollinators are attracted to the plant. The flowers are more conspicuous than on the jamaican caper. Fruits are bean-like capsules, green maturing to brown, constricted between the white seeds which are surrounded by a red pulp, and up to 6 inches long. Seeds are eaten by birds, and used for propagation. Limber caper grows well in moist sandy or limestone soils with good drainage and some organic matter. In landscaping, it is an attractive accent plant with its glossy green leaves and unusual flowers, and can be used as a barrier plant in shrub form as it responds well to pruning.
