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.
