Syzygium "orange twist"


Syzygium Australe "Orange Twist"

Like your Lilly Pilly a bit different? Orange Twist is the one for you.

This native beauty is more upright than other Syzygiums and actually twists as it grows to produce an interesting texture you just want to touch. It has attractive glossy foliage that emerges orange and turns green as it ages.

In spring Orange Twist produces masses of fluffy white flowers followed by purplish berries in summer - a real treat for our pollinators and birds as well as giving them shade and wind shelter.

Perfect as a dense medium-sized hedge or screen, and an unusual specimen in a pot on the deck Orange Twist is one of our favourites.

Quick Facts: 

  • What to use me for: I’m an unusual twist on the traditional Lilly Pilly just perfect for hedging, pots, or as a screening plant.

  • I grow to: I’ll get to 3 metres high and 1 metre wide.

  • I am currently: A strong baby at 15-20cm.

  • Where to place me:  I like full sun or part shade the most.

  • How far to space meFor a hedge space me at 0.75m intervals

  • Soil Conditions: Any really so long as its fertile and not waterlogged. As with all Lilly Pilly,  I like mulch and a yearly slow release fertiliser.

    Please note unfortunately due to biosecurity regulations we cannot ship this product to South Australia.

    Our plants are beautifully grown and mature in size with developed root's and guaranteed sun hardened. These plants can be inserted straight into the ground and make an excellent garden plant.
