"Backyard Bliss" Lilly Pilly (Syzygium australe) is the mate you need when space is a squeeze but you're keen for a lush green screen. This dense, medium to large shrub fits snuggly into those tight spots, while flaunting new growth that starts with a bright orange buzz before mellowing into a serene green. Being a top-notch hedging choice in Perth, it's got that lush, shiny foliage and those bonus edible berries that, let's be honest, are more about the looks than the munch.

When it comes to giving "Backyard Bliss" a proper home, you'll want to pop it in the ground with a good dash of soil conditioner, especially if you've got sandy soils. As the temperature rises from Birak (early summer) to Bunuru (late summer), a bit more hydration will keep this beauty in bliss. And if you fancy a trim or a style to keep things neat? No worries, whether it's a light snip or a topiary transformation, it'll handle it with grace.
