Eugenia oleina. An evergreen shrub or tree from tropical Asia, noted for the colourful red tones of its new leaves. In the UK it's best confined to pots, where its size can be controlled, though it may prove hardy in mild gardens. Occasional trimming will stimulate new red growth. It can be used for topiary. Small pink flowers may appear on larger plants.
