Syzygium australe ‘Tiny Trev’ – Lilly Pilly

A very dwarf, dense shrub with glossy green leaves, orange-red new growth and few flowers. A great native alternative to the box plant. Also great for topiary and bonsai work and for edging and hedging, as it has small leaves, a naturally tight growth habit and responds well to pruning . Grow in sun to part shade. Adaptable to most soils. Feed through the warm months with a good all purpose fertiliser. Rarely affected by psyllids.
