Meet the "Silly Pilly" Lilly Pilly (Syzygium australe), an Australian native that sure isn't silly when it comes to staying sturdy. Bred from "Resilience" and boasting that rich orangey-red new growth, this medium to large shrub truly knows how to stand out. What makes it unique? It's seed-grown, which means it sports a sturdy tap-root, allowing it to dance through the breezy days without a wobble while still showcasing all the admirable traits of its parent.

Keen on getting the best out of this not-so-silly fella? When planting in sandy ground, a mix of soil conditioner will make it feel right at home. And though it's moderately drought-hardy once settled, it wouldn't say no to some extra water during Bunuru (late summer) heat waves. A trim after flowering will keep it looking sharp and ready for the next performance. So, while its name might be playful, its gardening game is anything but!
