An uncommon New World subtropical blueberry relative native to the Andes.  Can be epiphytic and has hanging thin branches up to 5' long but usually shorter with rounded pale green leaves. Just looks like it wants to be on a dipping cliff by a waterfall.  Egg-shaped flowers that are white-pink with darker tips followed by translucent violet-tinged edible berries much like Agapetes.  No frost.  Way nifty.
