Lilly Pilly

Be very carefull to pick a Lilly Pilly that is resistant to the lilly pilly psyllid (Trioza eugeniae) otherwise you have to spray fortnightly which is costly and makes the fruit inedible. | Mitch White - Turramurra, NSW 20-Sep-2007

Lilly Pilly

LILLY PILLY, Syzygium sp, the Small Leaved Lilly Pilly/Riberry makes a beautiful screening hedge. It does very well in my clay soil prepared with gypsum before planting. It has grown over 3 metres clipped annually. Now established, I rarely water. | Sue Brennan - Kew, VIC 02-Jan-2010

Lilly Pilly

Don't worry about the psyllids, they make the tree unsightly but they won't kill the tree or spoil the fruit. My trees provide loads of fruit despite the psyllids and without spraying. Otherwise try the Eugenia species which are psyllid resistant. | Janet Riepon - Beverly Hills, NSW 28-Jan-2010
