Syzygium australe ‘Hinterland Gold’ – Lilly Pilly

A medium height, fast growing dense shrub with mid-sized glossy golden leaves, compactly arrayed. It flushes several times a year with fresh new growth. A great feature, screen, hedge and topiary plant that is also good for pots. Grows to four metres tall and one and a half metres wide, and responds well to pruning to keep it to whatever height is desired. The root system is not overly aggressive. This is a great choice for a native hedge, as it responds brilliantly to pruning. It has fluffy flowers in the warm months, followed by red berries. Good in a sunny to part shaded position. Mulch well to cut down weed problems, and feed with a good all purpose fertiliser in warm months.
