Common Name: Dwarf Lilly Pilly
Availabilty: In Stock
Acmena smithii var. Minor or the Dwarf Lilly Pilly, as it is more commonly known, is a highly popular evergreen bearing small cream/white flowers in late Spring and Summer, followed by attractive berries that are very attractive to fruit-eating birdlife. The pretty bright green foliage has new growth the colour of rich bronze, maturing to a glossy and deep green.
With a maximum growth of 1.5 - 5 metres, the Dwarf Lilly Pilly is ideal for pruning into a low - med dense hedge or as a windbreak. For the best effect, we recommend planting at around 1 metre apart to maintain a compact form.
Frost, drought and wind tolerant. Most soil types; mulch in Summer. Prefers full sun for best foliage colour.
This is a type of Australian "Bush Food" or "Bush Tucker". The fruit of Acmena smithii varieties can be eaten raw, or can be cooked and made into jams and sauces, and even cordials and juices. The taste is similar to Cranberries and the colour of the berries can range between white, purple and hot pink when ripe.
We apologise, but this is not available to South Australia due to quarantine restrictions.
