Syzygium paniculata Lilly PIlly Backyard Bliss
Starting from: $29.95
Syzygium 'Backyard Bliss' lilly pilly is a great Australian evergreen tree or screening plant, fast growing and dense with attractive small leaves. Naturally grows to around 6mt tall, but can be trimmed down to as low as 2mt.
It is psyllid resistant, so it doesn't get the pimply leaves that disfigure some varieties of Lilly Pilly. It also fruits less than other varieties.
Good for the sun to part shade. Feed in spring to summer with an all-purpose fertilizer. Prune in late winter before the new growth starts, and tip prune at other times if desired to keep neat. Excellent for screening. Trim the sides to maintain a narrow shape if required. Drought tolerant once established. During first summer water twice per week deeply at the roots, or as required.
