Feijoa (acca) sellowiana 1/2 std, or Pineapple Guava, is an attractive, evergreen shrub or small tree, with oblong, silvery green leaves, white-felted underneath. Unusual flowers with four red petals, white on the outside, and red stamens with yellow tips, appear singly or in clusters. They are edible and taste like marshmallows. Flowers are followed by edible, tough-skinned, red-flushed, green fruit with pineapple-spearmint flavour. Pineapple Guava 1/2 std loves full sun, and prefers light, moist, well-drained soils. The consistent soil moisture is very important for the production of fruits. It can tolerate a wide range of soil types and partial shade. It is moderately tolerant of salt and drought, therefore, suitable for coastal areas. Generally, pest-free and disease-free. Low maintenance, doesn’t require much pruning. Feijoa (acca) sellowiana 1/2 std is a unique, ornamental shrub, ideal for urban, coastal, and Mediterranean gardens. Perfect as a specimen or accent plant, great for wall-side borders, hedges and screens, or for growing in containers.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
