Lilly Pilly (Syzygium) Trees of all sizes

Australia boasts over 60 different varieties of Lilly Pilly and all fruits appear edible. They range from a small bush to a big tree and are well respected for their spectacular ornamental value and fast growth. Their root systems are generally non-invasive. Their fruits vary quite markedly in taste, but all seem to be well suited to preserving as they are high in acid and set well in their own pectin. They can make a refreshing snack when eaten fresh. The trees make excellent screens, windbreaks, hedges, bird attractants or garden ornamentals. All Lilly Pillies can be easily pruned to a required height lower than their normal final growing height.
