An exotic-looking evergreen shrub producing attractive, purple- red flowers with long, red stamens in mid-summer and grey- green leaves, white-woolly beneath. This pineapple guava copes well with drought and salt-laden air making it a valuable specimen or hedging plant for a sheltered, sunny, coastal garden. In areas where temperatures fall below 5°C to guarantee a crop of edible fruit it's best grown under glass in a cool greenhouse.Garden care: During the growing season water container-grown specimens regularly, applying a balanced liquid fertiliser every 4 weeks. Water sparingly in winter.Goes well with: Melianthus major, Trachelospermum jasminoides, Trachycarpus fortunei, Eucomis bicolor, Cordyline australis 'Torbay Dazzler', Verbena bonariensis
