What is Scaevola taccada

Scaevola taccada , kusatobella (scientific name:Scaevola taccada) is a subtropical to tropical evergreen evergreen shrub in the family Goodeniaceae, which is native to Hawaii, Australia and Polynesia.
It is also known as a "half-flower" in Hawaii because it produces unusual flowers that look like they have been cut in half.
On Hawaii's coast, this beach naupaca can be seen all year round. It's not uncommon to see white flowers and white fruit together.
In Japan, many white flowers bloom in the summer.
It grows naturally on the coast and settles in areas where the naturally fallen fruit has been swept away by ocean currents.
In other cases, the seeds of fruit eaten by birds germinate extensively through defecation and reproduce.
In recent years, it has been recognized for its salt and wind resistance and for its ability to settle in sandy soil.
