The Eugenia Chapter is named after a plant that commonly is called Simpsons stopper, nakedwood stopper, or twinberry stopper. Once upon a time when the Chapter was formed, its botanical name was Eugenia dicrana and the National Champion tree was located in Indian River County. Now, its botanical name is Myrcianthes frarans. Whatever you call it, this plant is a wonderful native plant for Indian River County as a shrub or tree with wonderful white fragrant flowers for pollinators and juicy red berries beloved by birds and other wildlife.

Chapter officers include:

President Judy Avril

Vice-president Carol Thomas

Secretary Janice Broda

Treasurer Fran Robinson
