Syzigium smithii - Lilly Pilly

  • Another rarely offered, unusual fruit, sweet when ripe, plus evergreen, leathery, dark green foliage with a purple hint when young. Excellent pot plant, it is not fully hardy, so it needs to be overwintered frost free, but from late Spring, fragrant, white, pom-pom flowers appear, followed by the striking magenta coloured fruits in the Autumn. 1-2m tall, not fussy to soil. It may work as a houseplant too.
