downy-rose-myrtle-by-kware-jiRhodomyrtus tomentosa

Originally from tropical Asia, the downy rose myrtle has oval-shaped hairy ("downy") leaves and rose-like pink flower. It produces a dark purple fruit with sweet, aromatic flesh. The downy rose myrtle is highly invasive and can form large, dense stands, called
monocultures, that outcompete native species for space and sunlight.
