Japanese Blueberry (Elaeocarpus decipiens)
The Japanese Blueberry tree is a fast grower that loves to be the focal point of the landscape. The tree sports a contrast of lush, healthy color throughout the year. The leaves are always changing according to their individual life cycle. New flushes of growth emerge in shades of bronze, peppering the rest of the glossy-green foliage, and mature leaves turn bright red.
The Japanese Blueberry is a hardy tree that can also be grown in a shrub or columnar form. This tree is an excellent street, yard or shade planting. It responds very well to pruning and is versatile when shaped into a topiary or tree form.
