Simpson Stopper

Simpson’s Stopper, also known as “Twinberry,” is a versatile shrub native to South Florida that brings joy to all. Its flowers attract butterflies, while its fruit pleases birds and homeowners appreciate its low-maintenance nature. This cold-hardy, salt-tolerant, and drought-resistant plant features year-round fragrant white blooms, followed by small red berries devoured by birds and edible for humans too. It adapts well to both sunny and shady conditions, with denser growth in the sun and attractive smooth bark in the shade. This adaptable shrub can be kept as a trimmed hedge or allowed to grow into a multi-branched small tree, fitting various landscapes. Its slow growth rate makes it suitable for ornamental use in small yards, and its salt tolerance makes it ideal for beach-side homes. Whether formal or casual, Simpson’s Stopper thrives, even being spotted on beach roadsides with minimal care.
