what do you call the tree which leaves are green then turn pink



Hmm, that's a tough one, most leaves start out red or pink and turn green as they age. Only thing I can think of is Pittosporum tenuifolium 'purpureum' and they turn dark purple, not pink. Unless you're thinking of pink in the autumn, just before they fall, and even then, pink?

the ends of Actinidia start out white and then go pink ?

I rejected that cos Guest said it was a tree, Pamg! Can't think of anything else at all.

neither can I Bamboo-- the Acers like 'brilliantissium' start out pink don't they--- we really need a photo unless the Guest could give a more detailed description
