Bush Cherry Lilly Pilly is a fast-growing evergreen native widely found across Australia. Its green oval leaves start out bronze turning deep green and glossy as they mature. Flowering begins in late spring with clusters of white, fluffy flowers appearing across the branches. Fruits start out pale and are ready to harvest when they turn pink or dark red. The sweet fruit may be eaten freshly picked from the tree, or made into jams, jellies, muffins, biscuits, cakes and wine. The lilly pilly can be kept as an edible hedge at 1m high and prune regularly to promote new growth.
