Eastern Wahoo is an interesting large shrub to small tree sized native. It can reach heights of 20 feet or more, with multiple suckering stems.
The light green elliptical leaves are fairly small, and serrated. The branches are arranged oppositely.
Eastern Wahoo is found in medium soils in lower lying sites, often upland from water, at the edge of woodlands in partial shade, or in more open sites.
The fruit does not last long on our landscape, I'm assuming it is eaten by birds but have not witnessed this first hand.
