Crossopetalum rhacoma, or 'Maidenberry', is a pretty pine rockland plant or hammock-edge plant that stays compact within shrub dimensions. It's a slow grower, perfect for a low-maintenance landscape. At a maximum height of about 8 to 10 feet, you can allow it to grow into a small tree, but otherwise tip the branches to encourage a fuller, bushy growth habit. 'Maidenberry' flowers are inconspicuous, but the fruit that follows nearly throughout the year is a brilliant scarlet and very appealing to birds. As a rockland/hammock-edge plant, 'Maidenberry' grows best under bright sun planted in very quick-draining, sandy, rocky soil, but add a little compost or other organic matter to help it along.
