Commonly known as Blueberry Ash, the Elaeocarpus reticulatus has bird attracting bright blue oval shaped fruits (drupe) growing from April-October. From October -January dainty pinkish white flowers form in masses. This combination of fruit and flowers results in a long ornamental display lasting nearly all year round. Leaves will turn a shade of bright red when they are older.
