OTHER: JAPANESE BLUEBERRY
LATIN NAME: ELAEOCARPUS DECIPIENS
This slow-growing evergreen tree can grow to sizes as large as 60 feet tall and wide, however the shape and height can be controlled. Its foliage emerges rusty-red and turns green as it matures. Older leaves take on dark green coloration, then they take on the same rusty-red color before turning bright red and falling off. This tree is a great choice for locations that cannot grow similar evergreens due to its versatility.
