Syzygium pondoense is a very rare, evergreen and hardy small tree. It branches low and can be used as a shrub. The bark ages to a beautiful, mottled grey. The leaves are a shiny dark green above and lighter below further accentuating the mottled look of this tree. The new leaves are red, making this a wonderful foliage plant. Showy, fluffy white flowers that attract insects are borne from Sept. to Feb. These are followed by large attractive red-purple fruits which are much sought after by birds.
Plant in shade or semi-shade and water regularly.
Size up to 3m
