Lilly Pilly – Allyn Magic
Acmena smithii – ‘Allyn Magic’
A lovely dwarf lilly pilly growing to just 50cm tall and 50cm wide. It produces lovely bronze, pink new growth that fades to a deep green. It produces puffy white flowers in summer.
It is great to use to border paths in the garden thanks to its small size. It is also great for topiary, bonsai and hedging.
It should be planted in full sun in well draining soils. Slow release fertiliser should be applied in spring and autumn. They can be pruned to shape throughout the year.
