Christmas Berry Overview
It is a most exhilarating experience seeing Passerina ericoides growing on cliff faces at Cape Point and overlooking the vast Atlantic Ocean, with branchlets trembling in the salt spray. It is clear that this plant is adapted to maritime conditions, also sitting comfortably amongst the coastal dunes from the Cape Peninsula to De Mond in the Bredasdorp District. The plant is characterized by greyish green leaves, greenish flowers and the fruits are fleshy red berries. ZA Distribution: Western Cape.
