Description:

Native to Australia, the dwarf lilly pilly is a dense medium sized evergreen with glossy green leaves. The new foliage is shiny dark red/bronze in colour with creamy white flowers putting on a beautiful display in summer. They have a small white-mauve fruit which are edible and ripen in winter.

Growing well in all environments except cool areas, it’s the ideal choice for anyone looking for a native plant to use as a privacy screen or windbreak, and is the perfect aesthetic backdrop for a colourful, low-maintenance garden. Useful as a substitute for traditional European hedge species, it grows to a height of four to six metres, and is equally at home in formal and more casual native gardens, working well in a variety of décors and with a broad range of colours and species.

Being native to Australia, they’re an extremely hardy plant that requires minimal watering and very little additional care. Outside of cooler South Eastern Australia, dwarf lilly pilly will flourish. Mild frost tolerance makes it capable of surviving cold snaps, but it is not suitable for planning in cool climates. While capable of growing in semi-shade, choosing to place them in full sun encourages strong, rapid and colourful growth that looks fantastic in any setting.
