"Aussie Boomer" Lilly Pilly (Syzygium australe) is a medium to large shrub that's undoubtedly Australian at heart. Just like a brilliant outback sunset, the new growth puts on a show with its bright orange flair before settling into a deep green. And while all Lilly Pilly varieties have been ace hedging choices in Perth, this bloke stands out not just for its lush, shiny foliage but also those edible berries that are more a treat for the eyes than the tastebuds.

Given that "Aussie Boomer" loves it down under, it's chuffed to be planted in the ground, especially when treated to a dash of soil conditioner for those more sandy terrains. As we head from Birak (early summer) into Bunuru (late summer), it's worth giving it a bit more of a drink than during the cooler stints. Fancy giving it a snip and style? Go ahead, whether you're going for a trim or full-on topiary, this Aussie legend is ready to look the part.
