Syzygium ‘Cheetah’ is a fast growing medium shrub with deep green leaves and eye catching red new foliage growth. It has fluffy white flowers in spring to summer, followed by pink edible berries. It grows to around 5 metres tall and 3 metres wide, and makes a great hedge, screen and windbreak plant.
Likes a sunny spot and does well on a wide range of soil types. Responds very well to pruning, and can be cut to size and shape.
Note – lilly pilly fruit can be a slipping and tripping hazard when they drop, so need cleaning up regularly
