Product Code: SYZAUS

Common Name: Brush Cherry / Lilly Pilly

The 'Brush Cherry' is also known as the 'Scrub Cherry'.
It is grown for its hedging / screening capabilities. This fast growing rain forest tree can be trimmed regularly to create the perfect fence line hedge.

The older leaves are a slightlyglossy mid green and with its vibrant red new growth and abundance of showy white flowers it can certainly put on a show.
In the rain forest it can grow to nearly 30mts tall but in the home garden it could reach 10mts if unpruned and you gave it 20 years.

'Brush Cherry' prefers full sun and will take part shade well but the new growth colour is diminished when shaded. It loves well drained, fertile soil but can cope in a wide range of soils. It is frost tender when young.
