Pinnacle™ Syzygium australe 'AATS' PBR

Sometimes you need a narrow growing small tree. Well these Pinnacle™ Syzygium fits the bill perfectly. Pinnacle™ Syzygium is a narrow Australian native Lilly Pilly, similar in shape to a Pencil Pine or narrow Conifer, but much better suited to the Australian climate.

You can use it along walls, fences, as a screen, or even as a narrow wind break. Pinnacle™ Syzygium can be pruned to stay shorter than this, even as low as 2 metres, but it requires very minimal pruning to stay narrow.

Pinnacle™ Syzygium works well in full sun and shade, and is suitable for most parts of Australia that don’t get much colder than minus 6 Celsius. It has beautiful red fruit that actually taste pretty good when ripe. So if you need a narrow tree or want some privacy, give Pinnacle™ Syzygium a go.

  1. How do you think this tree would go beside a pool? Will the red fruit make a mess?

    • Thanks for your question Johanne,

      Pinnacle™ Syzygium flowers from November to December after which it forms its berries early in Januray through February. Like any Lilly Pilly the berries will drop and in this case, midway through January is when they’ll start to drop. So I’d say yes that they will make a mess.

      An alternative for your situation might be to use Slim™ Callistemon which has a unique narrow growth habit and works great as a screen or hedge. Also it gives you red flowers.
