Is this Eugenia pyriformis?
« on: September 12, 2019, 01:58:12 AM »




Got this over a year ago, very slow growing in my greenhouse.
Sold as Eugenia pyriformis Uvahla but all the pics I can find seem like they have larger leaves, do small plants have smaller leaves or is this something else?
It is the start of spring in NZ and has put out a flush of growth and a lot of flower buds for such a tiny plant, no more than 30 cm tall and maybe 45 cm across.

Yes, it looks like Uvaia. They can have a very varied appearance and leaf size, even on the same plant, depending on growing conditions and age.

Great thank you, I was hoping it was but it didn't look like all the pics I saw when searching.
Significantly slower growing than my Jabuticaba which was the previous slowest growing plant in my garden.
