Syzygium thalassicum is a large-leafed shrub to small tree, growing in the wet tropical biome of the Solomon Islands. The leaves are wide, dark green and glossy when mature, but a striking red when emerging. So far it has stayed small and periodically produces beautiful white "powder puff" flowers and red fruit. The fruit are edible, yet not as tasty as other Syzygium species. It is fairly slow-growing but reliable in South Florida and does well from shade to full sun.
