Malay apple

Syzygium malaccense


tall tree with glossy but supple leaves; soft bell-shaped fruit and shockingly pink powder-puff flowers


spotted in small city park


When we walked into the park I thought there had been some sort of celebration with mass quantities of pink confetti. Everything in the vicinity of the big tree was covered in a fine layer of pink thread-like flower petals.
