Taking the high road, "Straight and Narrow™" Lilly Pilly (Syzygium australe) shoots up as a very tall and narrow shrub, making it a standout addition to any garden. Its new growth brings a burst of orange-bronze, adding a vibrant hue to the landscape. For those tight spots or when aiming for that streamlined look, this Aussie native is a brilliant choice.

Planting this slender beauty? A dose of soil conditioner will give it the perfect start in sandy grounds. It’s decently drought-hardy after finding its feet, but during Bunuru (late summer) heat waves, it'll appreciate a splash more water. Keep it in tip-top shape with a gentle trim post-flowering, ensuring it remains on the straight and narrow in both name and nature. A bit of fun with the name, but it truly lives up to it!
