Pineapple Guava, two views…

Pineapple Guava blooms

My Pineapple Guava or Feijoa has been in the ground for close to three years now.  This is the first year that this evergreen bush has been lush with blooms.  As I’ve noted hummingbirds near it I’m hoping for pollination, the end result being fruit this Fall.  Honey bees are also supposed to be attracted to this plant so between the two there is hope.  What isn’t captured except a tiny bit  in the first image because I’m such a macro fiend is that the underside of the leaves are silvery, really very pretty.

  1. Back in the ’90s there was a small pineapple guava orchard behind the Dry Creek Store (in yes, you guessed it, Dry Creek Valley). It made a wonderful counterpoint to the near-monoculture of grapevines. Don’t know it’s fate.

    Beautiful photos, as always…
