Flowering Austromyrtus Dulcis "Blushing"?
« on: April 25, 2015, 10:36:01 PM »
Anyone growing this who can give me advice?  One of my 2 young Midgen Berry bushes is producing very pink new growth, and it is oddly coinciding with flowering. It this normal or a sign of something wrong?  The new growth on my other plant is only faintly red, while the flowering one is bright pink and orange.

Side by side, the color difference is startling

Looks fine. They flush and blush all the time. Some flush green, others light pink, others dark red.

Thanks, that's a relief.  I was worried it might be nutrition caused.
