This tree has eye-shaped leaves ranging from 2-3 inches in length. Each leaf varies between a dark green or a dark purple. Some leaves have both colors on it while others only have one color. Each leaf is attached to a thin purplish-brown twig. At the end of some twigs are small buds of flowers. The flower bud is greenish-yellow and really tiny. The trunk of the tree is about 5 inches wide in diameter and about 12 feet tall.
This colorful tree is growing in my backyard in Ewa Beach. It's currently growing in soil and watered every other day.
