Lilly Pilly // Syzygium smithii

The Lilly Pilly is a hardy tree that can make be a great windbreak, hedge or garden ornament. The tree produces a small round pink/purple fruits during winter to summer that you can eat straight off the bush however if you want to get the most out of the berry we would recommend you make it into a delicious jam.

Lilly Pilly is native to eastern Australia, from Wilson’s Promontory (VIC) to Cape York (QLD) and is able to survive in temperate to tropical climates. The young Lilly Pilly can be frost tender so it is important to keep an eye on them when you first receive the plant. As they grow, they become far more hardy.

It's an easy plant to care for and won't require much work once it's established.  Only during the summer months, it will need to be kept moist and it is important to prune the plant once it has grown to keep its density. 

Harvesting: Fruit bloom winter to summer

Growing Conditions: Lilly Pillys grow best in full sun but don’t mind being in moderate shade. It is best to avoid windy locations, particularly in its infancy. When planting in the ground it will benefit by blending in a quality compost or composted manure and a controlled-release fertilizer.  Make sure to keep the pant watered, particularly in hotter weather.

Size: A small shrub/tree, it can grow up to 3-5 metres in height if left unpruned.

They arrived safely, still alive after planting out! Find it a bit hard to review yet as only about 10 cm high !

First bush food purchase

I bought a lily pilly, a finger lime and a bush tucker starter collection.
