Rivina humilis (Pigeonberry) slide #62135

Rivina humilis (Pigeonberry)

Part Sun to Light ShadeZone: 7b-10 12" tall Origin: USA

NEW! This cute but truly odd native groundcover member of the poke berry family hails from Florida west to Arizona, where it can be found on moist, but well drained soils in both light shade to part sun. In our trials, it has formed a 1' tall x 3' wide, salt-tolerant, deciduous groundcover of green leaves topped with short stalks of pink flowers that quickly change to tiny clusters of red fruit. Rivina is a favorite of numerous birds, butterflies, and mixed container designers. Rivina is also used in the Southwest as a red dye since it contains the pigment Rivianin a pigment similar to that in beets. If your soil gets too dry, rivina will go dormant and re-emerge when the rain arrives. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml)
