Syzygium australe – Aussie Southern

Syzygium australe is a fast growing, dense native with beautiful glossy leaves that start bronze and turn deep green. It grows foliage right down to the ground making a very good choice for hedging and also responds well to clipping therefore being perfect for medium to larger sized topiary projects. These plants tend to become frost hardy once they are established and are wind tolerant. The Lilly Pilly is perhaps the most cultivated hedging plant in Australia.
