Syzygium austral ‘Winter Lights’ – Lilly Pilly

An attractive large shrub to small tree with beautiful new growth in bright tones of red and orange which contrast nicely with the green older foliage, making it great for hedging and screening. Growing from 3 to 5 metres tall unpruned, it can be pruned to the desired size, and has psyllid resistant foliage. At its best in moist soil rich in organic matter where growth is fast, but can be used in a wide range of soils. Full sun to part shade. Fluffy white flowers in spring which attract birds.
