Flambeau Chilean Guava Plants: Ugni molinae

A charming little evergreen shrub with pale green and cream variegated leaves tinged with pink. The profuse, white and pink flowers in June to July are well-scented and ripen into red berries that are both ornamental and tasty, close to a wild strawberry.

Small, slow growing and low maintenance, it can be used as ornamental hedging up to about one metre. 

Features:

  • Evergreen
  • Variegated green & cream leaves with pink blushes
  • Prolific, scented white & pink flowers Jun-Jul
  • Edible berries, great aromatic flavour similar to wild strawberry
  • Slow growing, low maintenance
  • Hardy, but not recommended for the coldest regions of Scotland
  • To 1-1.5m

Growing Flambeau Chilean Guava

It prefers close to full sun and likes a fertile moist soil in order to flower well, although it is fairly drought tolerant in general.

The RHS have rated the hardiness as H4, suitable for most of Great Britain, but not recommended for Northern frost pockets and the colder parts of Scotland. It is happy near the coast in a reasonably sheltered location (direct salty winds fresh off the beach may be a bit much for it) and grows on chalk.
