Syzigium oleosum - Blue Lilly Pilly plants

Fast growing yet not invasive. Drought tolerant once established but enjoy regular water to look their best and produce beautiful flowers and fruit. Foliage emits a spicy fruity scent when crushed.

This tree can reach up to 21 feet in a home garden, but can be kept at shrub or hedge height with adequate pruning. They are also great in a container or as a bonsai. They make a perfect screen, windbreak, or shade tree. They like Full sun to part shade but I have given them full shade with no problems.

The blue 1/2" to 1" fruits  taste like a refreshing apple, lightly sweet with hints of lavender and ginger. They are one of the most cold tolerant of the Syzigium family. Hardy to zone 9a. They are related to Rose Apple, Java Plum, Malay apple, and Java Apple and have a similar crispness and flavor. Blue Lilly Pilly berries may be eaten straight off the tree or used to make jams, sauces, syrups, confections and wine.



These plants are seed grown and come in
4 pots roughly 8-12 tall
$10 each plus shipping.
