The fast-growing Lilly pilly tree is characterised by spectacular thick foliage with a glossy sheen, which makes them ideal as hedges, windbreaks. They also serve well for attracting birds or as an eye-catching ornamental plant for your garden. Lilly pillies are classed under a number of different genera. Formerly known as Eugenia, they are presently classed as Acmena, Syzygium or Waterhousea. Even though Lilly pillies grow into large trees in a rainforest setting, they can happily adapt to regular pruning for size. Plus, you can also get its miniature varieties.
