Acmena smithii minor 'Sunrise', commonly known as Dwarf Lily Pilly, is a compact, evergreen shrub prized for its attractive foliage and ornamental appeal. The new growth is a vibrant reddish-pink, maturing to glossy green, providing year-round color. In spring to summer, it produces small white fluffy flowers, followed by edible, pinkish-purple berries.

To grow Acmena smithii minor 'Sunrise', plant it in a sunny to partially shaded location with well-draining soil. It is versatile and can tolerate a range of soil types, though it prefers slightly acidic conditions. Regular watering is essential during the establishment phase, but once established, it is relatively drought-tolerant. Pruning helps maintain its compact shape and encourages bushier growth.
