Acmena smithii Minor

pet friendly


Acmena smithii minor is commonly known as ‘Good-bye Neighbour’ because it’s one of the fastest growing Lilly Pillys around. Currently 10-15cm tall.

For a thick, nosey neighbour-free hedge this acmena brings all the necessities. It has a broad dense habit and small dark green leaves on erect branches. There’s no way Carol and Jeff will see you lounging around while weeds run wild in the lawn.

In spring Acmena smithii minor is smothered in white flowers that pollinators just love. These are followed by small purple fruits in autumn that birds enjoy eating. It’s a great choice for nature lovers and a simple wildlife-friendly garden.

You’ll need to water and mulch this Lilly Pilly until it's established, but after that it’ll grow on its own to block out annoying sights and sounds.
