Looking for a Lilly Pilly that is perfect for your garden? Our Lilly Pillies are of the best quality and can be delivered across Sydney. They are popular landscaping plants used for hedges, screening, and windbreaks. The 'Bush Christmas' variety is a medium-sized shrub with dense glossy leaves and orange new growth during winter. It bears small white feathery flowers followed by pink berries which attract birds, bees, and butterflies. Pruning at the bud stage can avoid berries if required. Regular pruning can also encourage dense and compact growth. Purchase our Lilly Pillies today on our website!
