Syzygium Paniculata ‘Backyard Bliss’ is a great Aussie hedging plant, fast growing and dense, with attractive small leaves. It grows naturally to around three to four metres high but can be trimmed down to the desired height and width. It is psyllid resistant, so it doesn’t get the pimply leaves that disfigure some varieties of Lilly Pilly. It also fruits less than other varieties.
- Good for sun to part shade
- Feed in spring to summer with a good all-purpose fertiliser
- Prune in late winter before the new growth starts, and tip prune at other times if desired to keep neat
