"Match-me-if-you-can"

Good Day, We've never met, but I am a Bermudian who is studying native and endemic flora and fauna of Bermuda. I also work at the Bermud Aquarium,Museum and Zoo. I don't mean to be rude or anything but I was surfing the internet and happen to come across this link for this image that appeared on google.com of the Match-me-if-you can bush. I wanted to inform you that this species is actually not native to Bermuda. It is an introduced species (imported) and has been favored among Bermudians as a hedge plant. Lastly, you are correct it is used as a medicinal plant as well still by some of the locals. I hope that you have enjoyed you stay on the island. If you have any other questions don't hesitate to ask. Sincerely, Ronald Burchall
