This fantastic Lilly Pilly has small, glossy, lance-shaped leaves which are pink/red when young.

It responds well to clipping so it can make an excellent hedge or is good in pots or tubs for topiary.

The cream coloured fluffy flowers are followed by bunches of small edible pink to red pear- shaped berries.

 The berries have a tart, cranberry-like flavour, with a hint of cloves and are a popular  bush food,  can be used to make tasty jams.
