Lilly Pilly - Purple Cherry

Syzygium crebrinerve

Masses of white flowers appear in the spring, followed by fruits every second or third summer. The large brightly coloured purple fruit are tasteless and floury by human standards. The tree is a splendid ornamental, hardy in full sun and tolerant of some frost. It can grow into a large buttressed 35-40m tree. The bright red new growth can be seen from a distance.
