Syzygium australe, brush cherry, fruit and leaf. By John Moss [Public domain] (Photo Credits)

Australia boasts over 60 different varieties of lilly pillies all of which appear to be edible. They range from a small bush to a large tree and are well respected for their spectacular ornamental qualities. Their tastes vary quite markedly but all have a high pectin content and are well suited to preserving. The trees make excellent screens, windbreaks, bird attractants or garden ornamentals.

Lilly Pilly - Hinterland Gold

$14.75

A medium height, fast growing dense shrub with mid-sized glossy golden leaves, compactly arrayed. It flushes several times a year with fresh new growth. A great feature, screen, hedge and topiary plant that is also good for pots. Grows to four meters tall and one and a half meters wide, and responds well to pruning to keep it to whatever height is desired. The root system is not overly aggressive. This is a great choice for a native hedge, as it responds brilliantly to pruning. It has fluffy flowers in the warm months, followed by red berries. Good in a sunny to part shaded position. Mulch well to cut down weed problems, and feed with a good all purpose fertiliser in warm months.

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.

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.

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.
