When it comes to standing tall and facing challenges, the "Resilience" Lilly Pilly (Syzygium australe) truly lives up to its name. Specifically bred to stand firm against psyllid, this medium to large shrub not only has toughness in its genes but also dons striking orangey-red new growth. Amidst the lush, shiny foliage, the resilience of this Australian native shines even brighter.

If planting in sandy soil, be sure to mix in some soil conditioner for that extra oomph. Come Bunuru (late summer), and our resilient mate might appreciate a bit more water, especially during those heat waves. To keep it looking sharp, a light trim post-flowering works wonders. Just a bit of care, and this Lilly Pilly will show you how resilience truly looks and feels.
