From the cloud forests of Panama and South America where it grows on trees in accumulations of decomposed debris in crotches.  Finally, an upside to crotch debris!  Essentially a neotropical blueberry, this had been placed in Vaccinium a time or two.  Small white to pinkish flowers with similar colored edible fruit. Frost sensitive, great plant where that is not concern.  Otherwise, this will be a fantastic hanging basket that can be overwintered in sunroom or greenhouse.
