Fairy Petticoat Tree (elaeocarpus grandiflorus)

Fantastical fringed, delicate, white and pink flowers dangle like animated creatures off the limbs in mass, intermittently from early spring to late fall. The 1 inch to 1 ½ inch, ornamental flowers, once visited by all the neighborhood butterflies and hummingbirds, slowly develop into almost round, green drupe Rather large fully mature, this glorious tree can reach amazing heights of 90 feet or more. The young leaves erupt in a display of red and slowly turn to narrow, long and glossy green. This great tree is easily kept small in a container rather than in-ground planting for enjoyment in the smaller urban collection.
