Acmena smithii 'Hot Flush' Dwarf Lilly Pilly, Evergreen shrub growing up to 1.5mt. Produces white flowers that appear from early to late summer. Pink, bronze & chartreuse new leaves.  Excellent low form for formal clipped hedging. Acmena Hot Flush, is a variety of Lilly Pilly that is native to Australia. It is a small, evergreen tree or shrub that is grown for its attractive foliage and showy flush of bright red new growth.
Foliage is  oval-shaped and dark green, and they have a slightly wavy or undulating edge. The most striking feature of the plant is its new growth, which emerges in a bright red color in the spring and gradually matures to a dark green color over the summer. In the spring, the plant also produces small, white flowers that are followed by edible, purple berries in the fall.
Acmena Hot Flush is a hardy plant that is relatively easy to grow. It prefers well-draining soil and full sun to partial shade. It can tolerate a wide range of soil types and pH levels, but it prefers slightly acidic soil. The plant is relatively drought-tolerant once established and does not require much maintenance. It can be pruned in late winter or early spring to control its size and shape.
Overall, Acmena Hot Flush is an excellent choice for gardeners looking for a low-maintenance tree or shrub that provides year-round interest with its attractive foliage and colorful new growth. It can be used as a specimen plant in mixed borders or as a screen or hedge plant. Its dense growth habit makes it an effective sound barrier and windbreak, as well as a habitat for wildlife such as birds and butterflies.
