Plant Profile – Pinnacle™ Syzygium australe ‘AATS’ PBR is an excellent plant for shaping and borders.
By Katrina Layt
Pinnacle™ Syzygium is the perfect topiary plant as you can see above, they almost look like Australian Native Christmas trees! Even between pruning, Pinnacle™ Syzygium will still look tidy and doesn’t grow too wide. If you’re tight for space it also works great as a narrow screen or hedge.
The glossy green leaves and subtle reddish brown new growth provide new textures for narrow plantings and the fluffy white flowers and red fleshy fruits remind you that this amazing plant is actually a Lilly Pilly.
Depending on conditions, Pinnacle™ Syzygium grows from 6-10m high and 1-1.5m wide. While Pinnacle™ Syzygium prefers well drained and moist soils it tolerates most soils and is available in 200mm pots and above.
