Elaeocarpus 'Prima Donna' is a wonderful small rainforest tree with a neat and tidy column shape. The pink flowers distinguish this from the normal form of Blueberry Ash which has cream flowers. The flowers are delicately fringed, like miniature ballerina skirts! It has beautiful blue berries through summer. A very adaptable plant that will suit most gardens and is great for streetscapes. It is good under power lines, and doesn't have an aggressive root system. It grows from 4 to 8 metres high and around 4 metres wide, and responds well to pruning, so can be trimmed to size.
