"Cherry Bomb" Lilly Pilly (Syzygium australe) truly is the explosive result of crossing “Resilience” with “Winter Lights”. This newcomer on the block boasts deep cherry-red new foliage that's as vibrant as fireworks, paired with the classic lush, shiny leaves Perth gardeners adore. Not only is this variety a visual stunner, but it's also got resistance to pesky psyllids, ensuring it's not just another pretty face.
For those wanting to light up their garden with "Cherry Bomb", it's best planted in the ground, with a little soil conditioner for those sandy spots. Although it can tough out the Bunuru (late summer) heat with moderate drought-hardiness, giving it a splash of water during warmer days will keep it bursting with life. And remember, a light trim post-flowering will ensure this Aussie gem continues to dazzle year-round.
