Syzgium leumannii - Riberry
Family: Myrtaceae

An outstandingly beautiful plant, either as a 30m forest tree or a 3m shrub in cultivation.
Its extremely dense foliage flushes several times a year in shades of pale to brilliant pink, forming a weeping crown that sweeps to the ground.
The leaves are small, opposite and markedly drawn out at the tip.
Numerous white fluffy flowers develop into prodigious branches of red edible fruits.
It grows in littoral and lowland subtropical rainforest up to 1500m.

Grown as bush food as the fruit is used in sauces and jams.
Fresh peeled seed reliably germinates in 3-4 weeks but many fruits are seedless.
