LILLY PILLY - BLUE

Syzygium oleosumBy Poyt448 Peter Woodard CC0 (Photo Credits)
Botanical Name: Syzygium oleosum
Description

A native tree with delightful purple fruit this is a favourite of the lilly pilly group. The delicate fruit is aromatic with a sweetish slightly gingery or turpentine flavour. Fruit is spongy and delicate. The glossy green leaves have numerous large oil glands that give a distinctive smell when crushed and distinguish it from other lilly pillies.

She has gorgeous red new growth. She's a bit straggly at the moment but she's not very old. I am sure she will bush up to be beautiful.


2008: I bought her as tube stock from Dalyes and she was in the ground for 12 months before I moved. So she got dug up in the middle of spring and moved to our new place.


2009: I was worried that she wouldn't make the move but plenty of water and seasol and she didn't bat an eyelid.


2010: She's very happy with beautiful red/bronze new growth.


Spring 2011: lots of new growth... will this be the year she gets her first flowers?
