This is an as yet unidentified large-leafed Syzygium species that tends to have a shrub form but may become a small tree over time. 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 fruit but the fruit do not seem edible. It is fairly slow-growing but reliable in South Florida and does well from shade to full sun. (Pot size: 3 gallon)
