The small, dark-green leaves of this stopper contain aromatic oils with the fragrance of nutmeg. It grows dense and shrub-like in a sunny location, but it is taller and looser when grown in the shade. It has fragrant, white flowers periodically throughout the year that develop into attractive red berries that attract bird life.
