Simpson's Stopper

Simpson's Stopper

This is a Simpson's Stopper (Myrcianthes fragans)
It is a native Florida evergreen shrub. It has a max height of 20 feet, likes to be in the sun or partial shade and likes moist, well-drained soils, but will adapt well to a lot of different soil types.

I have taken a shine to the Simpson's Stopper because of its fragrant leaves. In the spring we will see a profusion of fragrant flowers followed by berries that the birds will love. Also it has exfoliating bark and what the industry refers to as ornamental bark.

The word ornamental comes up a lot when describing plants around here to my surprise. I think about art and how the word ornamental was flung around a lot in art history classes. If I recall correctly, in art, ornamental would refer to a piece that is relished with detail and serves no particular purpose but to look extravagant, a decorative piece that looks good but has no meaning beyond that, which is hard to distinguish in art and also with plants. In the plant world, ornamental refers to a decorative plant or one that is grown to decorate because it is considered beautiful. That a plant can be referred to as ornamental seems funny to me because despite our judgment of its looks, its meaning is its purpose - to attract a natural propagator - its whole beautiful purpose is for survival and this seems to me the most meaningful of all meanings, and don't all plants do this? And therefore aren't all plants then ornamental? Or not ornamental? That bird or butterfly attracted to that tasty looking fruit or fragrant flower wouldn't refer to the plant as ornamental, because to them it isn't just purely decorative, but has a meaning verging on the meaning of life. Even when taken out of context and placed in a home (serving no purpose but to be decorative) the plant itself is still beautiful for its purpose of survival and therefore not ornamental, but whatever, I think I get it now. Houseplants (i.e. plants taken out of their natural contexts) = ornamental. Right? I'll have to ask about this tomorrow.

But back to the Simpson's Stopper.

Wait, maybe the person who wrote these one-page descriptions of the plants that I am learning from is just misusing the word ornamental to describe the bark or using it as synonymous with detailed, showy or repetitive.

The Simpson's Stopper is slow growing but at its grand max height of 20 feet and with its branches untrimmed it serves as an excellent screen or buffer plant. This means that it will provide adequate blockage between your yard and your neighbor's yard, a busy road, or anything else you might not want to acknowledge all the time, or ever again.

Cotoneaster horizontalis

Cotoneaster horizontalis

Otherwise known as the Herringbone Cotoneaster.

Cotoneaster horizontalis is a low-growing shrub of spreading habit, with branches in a characteristic herringbone pattern. It is invaluable for covering shady walls or for covering banks. The leaves turn a vivid fire engine red in the autumn, a striking backdrop for the bright red berries, which persist into the winter.

Cotoneaster horizontalis will tolerate a range of soil types - from the poor dry soils to moist fertile loams. For best results plant in full sun, however this shrub will happily grow under partial shade. Prune to shape in spring - removing older wood if necessary.

This shrub has many strengths, and landscapers love it! It attracts wildlife to feed or nest, and birds love its berries. The leaves and berries provide autumn and winter interest. It is an all round tough plant suitable for problem areas ... suitable for exposed coastal planting, it tolerates full sun and sandy, drought-prone soils, it tolerates cold exposed locations, and it tolerates heavy clay soils. It will grow in the barest crack in a wall or paving stone. And it responds beautifully to bonsai treatment.

There is some concern about its spread into the wild, with fears that it could become invasive if allowed free reign. This is unlikely to occur in the average garden situation. This speciman has been growing in my garden for some 15 years, during which time I have had no problems with uninvited seedlings!
