SpecificationsThis variety of Elaeocarpus is a strikingly beautiful and hardy small tree and being a native it is suitable to grow in a variety of conditions. The foliage of this lovely tree is a deep green and with the fresh growth reddish-pink in colour makes it a standout even when not in flower. The cascading flowers are pink and feather-like with fringed edges. They hang like short tassels in small clusters during spring and summer and then followed by dark blue bird attracting berries, the ornamental value of this tree just doesn't stop! In addition, the older leaves turn red and so makes the Elaeocarpus reticulartus a spectular specimen for year-round interest. This very hardy fast growing small tree/shrub is adaptable and will grow in various soil types including sandy loam, clay loam and poor soils. Very suitable in low maintenance, coastal and cottage gardens. Also does well in containers.
