U.S. Endangered species
A rare plant of scrub habitat in Martin and Palm Beach Counties.
Fourpetal pawpaw is a shrub from one to 3 meters (3-10 ft.) tall, easily the tallest of the pawpaws in the southern peninsula. Flowers appear in the upper leaf axils after the emergence of the current season's leaves. Despite the name, most plants will usually only have a few flowers with four sepals, with most having three or five. The sepals are triangular, green, and have lines of reddish hairs. The petals are maroon or white with maroon streaks. The fruit is a greenish-yellow berry to 9 cm (3-1/2 in.) long. Leaves are alternate, oblong to oblanceolate, 5-13 cm (2-5 in.) long with revolute margins, the lower surfaces pale green with raised veins.
