Syzygium ‘Cascade’ – Lilly Pilly

 

Cascade is a beautiful mid sized shrub with mid-sized glossy apple green leaves with attractive red and pink new growth. Spectacular pink powder-puff flowers in summer are followed by pinkish fruits that are edible and attract birds. Has a lovely weeping habit, with many flushes of coloured new growth, and has a thick bushy habit. A great feature, screen, hedge or topiary plant that is also good for pots. It responds well to pruning, and is attractive left to grow naturally. Good for sun to part shade in most soil types. Tolerant of light frosts, and psyllid resistant. Has a relatively non-aggressive root system. Fertilise through the warm months once established. It is a cross between Syzygium leuhmanii and wilsonii.
