It's Pineapple guava



UPDATE ~ with the help of Miss Nell Jean of Secrets of a Seedscatter 
they have been ID as Pineapple guava

They sit on the side of a very busy street in downtown Savannah .. 
and I am going to go back and see if I can find some seeds and if it fruits..
Thank you so much Miss Nell Jean.
Have a wonderful afternoon ya'll hugs, Cherry

    1. Of course I spelled it wrong the first time.

      Cherry, I googled for 'tropical flowers with prominent red stamens; and found six likely candidates. The one that most closely resembles your flower and its foliage is
      Metrosideros polymorpha
      Search for that and see what you think.

  2. Pineapple guava -- I should have known it would be simple. All in the myrtle family. Fun post.

  4. This is very pretty and so different from anything we have here in Minnesota. I hope you are able to find some seeds.
