An excellent plant for shaping and borders

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.

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.
