Kevin,

My first though is Jaboticaba.  It's hard to see from the close-up photo, jaboticaba have opposite leaves.  They do make nice bonsai and fruit directly on the old wood.

Greg

There are some photos of one that I bought from a nursery awhile back.

That's what I thought, because of the redness of the new shoots. The bark seemed a little too smooth, at first glance. I had a couple years ago that developed furrowed bark fairly quickly. Not much of an ability to ID too much with any degree of accuracy.

At least now you know!! drunken lol! lol!

well, thank you for that andre !
but with a max height (in the wild) of 30-50', thats one helluva "bush" ! Wink


from wiki:
_____________________________________________________________________
The magenta lilly pilly (Syzygium paniculatum, syn. Eugenia paniculata), also known by the common name magenta cherry, is a broad dense bushy rainforest tree native to New South Wales. It grows to a height of 15 m with trunk diameter up to 35 cm. Leaves are 3–9 cm long, opposite, simple and slightly obovate, tapering at the leaf base. The leaves are dark glossy above, and paler below. White flowers are produced in clusters. The edible fruit is usually magenta, but can be white, pink or purple.[3]

It is commonly cultivated in eastern Australia and elsewhere. Well known as an edible wild fruit with a pleasantly sour apple-like flavour. It is eaten fresh or cooked into jams.[4]

It is commonly confused with Syzygium australe, brush cherry.
________________________________________________________________________

so now i wonder though if you meant syzygium australe ?

wiki again:
_______________________________________________________________________
Syzygium australe, with many common names that include brush cherry,[1] scrub cherry,[1] creek lilly-pilly,[1] creek satinash,[1] and watergum,[1] is a rainforest tree native to eastern Australia. It can attain a height of up to 35 m with a trunk diameter of 60 cm. In cultivation, this species is usually a small to medium-sized tree with a maximum height of only 18m

i like the common name of watergum... almost as cool sounding as spekboom
