inflorescence and leaves

flowers closeup--how many petals, sepals, and stamens are there?  Is this a dicot or a monocot?

flowers again--often, the flowers are pink in bud

fruits (berries)--what do you think might like to eat these bright red berries?
leaves--do these leaves look glabrous or pubescent to you?  Judging by how big these leaves are, would you say this plant prefers to live in the sun or in the shade? habit--Rivina is typically a short plant (which is why the specific epithet is humilis, meaning "low")
