Sublime™ Acmena smithii 'DOW30' PBR

I just love the dense shape of this tree, and it’s beautiful lime coloured new growth. Yes this is a tree not a shrub. Most Lilly Pillys are grown as a shrub, but not Sublime™ Acmena, it’s a tree.

Sublime™ Acmena is extremely psyllid resistant, and drought and frost tolerant.  Sublime™ Acmena is ideal for screening, hedges, topiary or garden features. The foliage is dense all the way to the ground level.

Masses of white fluffy flowers appear in Summer that develop into a deep mauve berry, giving an excellent contrast against the foliage. These berries are also edible.

Sublime™ Acmena  is excellent for attracting birds to your garden. Sublime gets about 5 metres tall.  Sublime™ Acmena, its got to be one of Australia’s best trees.
