Psychotria capensis is a fairly hardy, evergreen shrub or small tree that is nicely shaped with leathery, glossy leaves.
It is a great foliage plant. It grows in the semi-shade and shade and bears clusters of bright yellow flowers from August to January which attract insects to the garden.
Another attractive feature are the fleshy berries that ripen red, yellow and black and adorn the tree for many months. These attract many birds to the garden hence the common name.
An excellent garden or container plant for those difficult shady areas of the garden.
