HOBBIT™ Syzygium makes a great screening hedge with no pruning

Hobbit™ Syzygium francisii ‘DBK01’ PBR

  • Dense, compact shrub with yearly pruning
  • A dense screening hedge with no pruning
  • Leaf dimple and Myrtle Rust resistant

Description: Hobbit™ Syzygium is a really dense, compact native shrub. If you are really patient and wait 5-6 years, it will become a dense screening plant at 3 metres tall, needing little maintenance. Pruning once a year will keep Hobbit™ Syzygium a low growing shrub.

For a taller screen, plant 1.5m apart. For better long term growth, plant 2m apart. For a compact smaller hedge plant 1 metre apart and prune the top yearly and prune the side every two years on average.

It is strongly resistant to leaf-dimpling psyllids and appears to be sterile. Indications are it is highly Myrtle Rust resistant, as on two occassions neighbouring plants have had Myrtle Rust and Hobbit™ Syzygium has not.

Size: 60cm-3m high x 90cm-1.5m wide.

Uses: Specimen shrub, small hedge, screen.

Position: Full sun to moderately heavy shade. Free draining to moderately heavy soils. Tolerates frost, drought, humidity and salt. Avoid prolonged wet feet.

Care: Water as required for 8-13 weeks until established. Plant in a well mulched garden (chunky mulch is recommended). If required use slow release fertiliser in spring. Prune every year if required.

Where it works: NSW, ACT, VIC, SA, WA, TAS, QLD & NT.
