Florida Holly berries are blushing and reddening

First, the warnings: This shrub/tree is one of the worst exotic pest plants in the State of Florida. It produces a dense forest canopy that shades out all other foliage and produces such a poor habitat for native wildlife species that almost nothing other than the Brazilian Pepper itself will grow or live in Over 700,000 acres in Florida are covered by this weed.

While it is commonly known as Florida Holly, Schinus terebinthifolius is neither from Florida nor a holly. The plant was brought to the state in the early 1800's from South America to be cultivated and sold as an ornamental plant. S. terebinthifolius is a member of the Anacardiaceae family which includes poison ivy, poison oak, poison sumac, and poisonwood. Sensitive people may develop severe dermatitis if their bare skin comes into contact with the sap or resins of S. terebinthifolius. Many people also report respiratory problems when the plant is in bloom.

In other countries S. terebinthifolius is often grown for culinary purposes. The berries, when dried, are the Pink Peppercorns in products such as McCormick Spice's "Peppercorn Milange". When crushed, the seed releases a sweet, volatile, pine-like aroma faintly smelling like piperine oil, the key component in true black pepper. The flavor of Pink Peppercorns is sweet, warm, fresh and camphorous with a lingering astringency but little heat. Bees love the plant's flowers and make honey from their nectar. Raccoons and possums eat the fruit of the plant and contribute to its spread by passing the seeds in their scat. Fruit-eating birds such as the migratory American Robin also adore the fruit and can seed wide areas by passing the seeds in their guano. It is reported that certain birds and other wildlife during certain times of the year adore the berries of this plant for their narcotic effects.

The Florida Holly or Christmasberry tree gets these names because its fruit-laden branches are often used as Christmas decorations in Florida and the plant's small bright-red fruits mature between December and January.

Aucuba Japonica (Japanese laurel)

Aucuba japonica (Japanese laurel) are grown for their bold foliage, autumn fruit, and adaptability to shade, dry soil, pollution, and coastal conditions. A. japonica is a rounded, evergreen shrub with small, reddish purple flowers in spring, and red berries (on female plants) in fall. It grows to about 10 feet tall and wide. 'Crotonifolia' has leaves that look like they were speckled with yellow paint. 'Gold Dust' is female with heavy yellow speckling. 'Mr. Goldstrike' is male, more upright, and has gold-splashed leaves. Use as a hedge or specimen, in a container outdoors, or as an imposing houseplant

Aucuba japonica e originaria del Giappone,comprende tre specie di arbusti coltivati per la bellezza delle foglie (grandi, larghe, opposte, talvolta a margine dentato e con una grande varieta di marmorizzazioni e variegature) e per le bacche rosse che produce dopo la fioritura . Sono piante molto resistenti, adattabili e coltivabili sia all’aperto che in vaso (anche in appartamento).
