Elaeocarpus reticulatus 'Pink'

Blueberry Ash

This hardy small tree or tall shrub is an Australian native tolerant of a variety of conditions and can be found naturally along the Eastern coast of Australia from the northern parts of Tasmania extending through to Fraser Island in Queensland. It has deep green foliage which is a reddish-pink colour when young and produces white to pink feathery flowers with fringed edges. The flowers hang like tiny lampshades during spring and summer and the ornamental display is continued with the appearance of dark blue berries from which it gets its name. In addition to this, the older leaves turn a red colour making this a spectacular tree for year-round interest.
