Lilly pilly ‘Fire Screen’ is a compact, fast growing shrub with coppery red new growth, and a dense growth habit all the way to the ground, making it a fantastic hedge and topiary plant. A good easy care plant that responds well to pruning. It naturally grows to around 4 metres high and a metre and a half wide, but can be pruned to size and shape if needed. Tolerates a wide range of soils, but prefers a moist well drained soil in a sunny to semi shaded position. Rarely troubled by pests or diseases, and is resistant to psyllids. Tolerates dry periods well once established. Fertilise and water through the warm months for best growth.
