What Houzz contributors are saying:

8. Find a plum-perfect shrub. In Hawaii Natal Plum is often mistaken for other blinding white, even more fragrant plants, such as plumeria or tiare. The big difference: You can grow Natal Plum in mild mainland gardens, especially in coastal Southern California. You can prune this evergreen shrub for a low hedge or ground cover. It thrives in a container.Botanical name: Carissa macrocarpa Common name: Natal Plum USDA zones: 10 to 11Water requirement: Light to moderateLight requirement: Full sun or light shadeMature size: 6 feet tall and wide; more compact varieties are availableGrowing tips: Plant it against a wall for extra warmth and winter proctection. Beware the spines on its branches.
