These broadleaf evergreen trees and shrubs grow only in warm or temperate regions. Excellent landscape trees or accent plants. Their clusters of white or pink flowers and round berries attract birds, but also create litter. Bark sheds, too. Likes sun and protection from wind. Grows best in dry, sandy and acid soil.
