Pineapple Guava, scientifically known as Feijoa sellowiana, is a versatile and attractive evergreen shrub or small tree native to South America, particularly Brazil, Uruguay, and parts of Argentina and Paraguay. It is celebrated not only for its ornamental value but also for its delicious, pineapple-flavored fruits.

Growing to about 10 to 15 feet tall and wide, with the potential to reach up to 20 feet under optimal conditions, Pineapple Guava can be grown as a dense shrub or pruned into a small tree. Its foliage is a glossy green with a distinctive silvery underside, providing year-round visual interest. In late spring to early summer, it produces unique and striking flowers. The petals are white and edible, with a sweet flavor, contrasting beautifully against the prominent red stamens.

Adapted to full sun to partial shade, Feijoa sellowiana thrives in well-draining soil and is relatively drought-tolerant once established. It prefers a slightly acidic to neutral pH but can adapt to various soil types. Regular watering and mulching can help to maintain moisture levels and support healthy growth.

In landscaping, Pineapple Guava is often used as a hedge, screen, or specimen plant due to its dense foliage and attractive form. It can also be planted in orchards or edible gardens for its fruit, which typically ripens in the fall. The fruits can be eaten fresh, made into jams, or used in desserts and salads.

Overall, Pineapple Guava is a low-maintenance and multifunctional plant, ideal for gardeners looking to add beauty, shade, and edible elements to their landscapes. Its tolerance for different growing conditions, combined with its attractive flowers, foliage, and fruits, make it a popular choice for a wide range of garden styles and designs.
