Syzgium 'Pink Cascade'

Colour in the garden doesn't just come from flowers. These pink leaves are appearing after the rain all over my beautiful weeping Syzgium. The bushes also have clusters off red/pink flowers, but I have to choose whether to have flush after flush of pink leaves or one lot of pink flowers. It seems I can't have both. Cutting off the new growth forces pink re-growth a month or so later, but also limits flowering.
What to do? At the moment I am regularly cutting back the leaves but as a kind of compromise I've planted three of these and one I leave alone, so that one flowers for me. Posted by Picasa
