An evergreen shrub with small, rounded leaves, grey/green above and covered in silver felt on the undersides. In summer it produces very beautiful flowers consisting of four cup-shaped pink petals around dark red stamens and yellow anthers. It responds well to pruning and although naturally a multi-stemmed shrub, pruning from a young age can result in a lovely little architectural tree with pale grey bark. Pruning should take place after fruiting.
Acca is not only cultivated for its ornamental value but also as a fruiting shrub. 'Unique' is a self-pollinating variety and will produce delicious egg-shaped, edible fruits (technically berries) in summer, with a flavour of delicate mint combined with pineapple. The flowers are also edible and a whole flower makes an exotic garnish.
Grow in well-drained soil in a sunny, sheltered position. In very frost prone areas grow in a conservatory in JI no 3 in good light. Acca is drought and salt tolerant, making it an ideal shrub for coastal gardens.

Eventual mature plant size :
Height 2m
