Common Name: Magenta Cherry
Availabilty: In Stock
Syzygium Australe Elite, or Magenta Cherry as it is more commonly known, is a small, evergreen tree or tall shrub that grows to 5 metres. It's density of foliage and moderate height renders it as an effective windbreak or hedge. New growth is light bronze, maturing to a happy and bright green, whilst the foliage has a very pretty weeping habit.
White flowers appear during the summer months that are attractive to birdlife, followed by reddish berries much of the year. Low maintenance but great results is the key here, Magenta Cherry requires very little work, if any. Then to top it off, syzygiums are hardy to most environments... what's not to love?
Frost & wind tolerant. Most well drained soils. Full sun.
This is a type of Australian "Bush Tucker". Syzygium australe varieties produce reddish coloured berries that can be eaten or cooked, and is typically made into jam or jelly.
