There are quite a number of Syzygium malaccense (Common Name: Malay Rose Apple, Jambu Merah; Family: Myrtaceae), which are slightly different from the Syzygium samarangense (Synonym: Eugenia javanica; Common Name: Jambu Ayer), planted in the garden. 

One of these areas is the Malay Garden and one can sometimes see the beautiful red staminate flowers of this tropical fruit tree before they are pollinated and develop into red crunchy fruits.
