Elaeocarpus reticulatus ‘Prima Donna’
One of our favourite trees for informal screening, this pink flowered variety of Blue Berry Ash is a versatile and colourful Evergreen Trees Melbourne. Columnar in habit, the new growth of the Elaeocarpus is touched with copper, fading through lime green to a rich darker green, that develops a silvery powder like coating, hence the name. In late Spring-early summer, masses of blush coloured, bell shaped flowers cove the tree, followed by bright blue fruits. As a feature tree flanking the house, or lined up as a low maintenance screen, this is a lovely tree for classic and modern gardens alike. Elaeocarpus Prima Donna can grow to a mature size of 6-8m tall by 4m wide.
