Red Head™ Acmena smithii ‘BWNRED’ 

Description: Red Head™ Acmena Lilly Pilly is an attractive large shrub/small tree with glossy rounded, deep green foliage. New growth flushes red to deep claret then changes to chocolate before hardening off the dark green. The dense foliage can be pruned down to 1.5m high and is fire retardant. Clusters of small white flowers are followed by bright purple edible berries.

Size: 6m high x 2m wide.

Planting Density: 1 plant per 1-5m², 1 plant per 1-2 linear metres.

Uses: Ideal for specimen planting, hedging and screening.

Position: Full sun to part shade. Tolerates cold and drought. Red Head™ Acmena suits well drained to heavy clay soils.

Care: Trim as required. 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. For a tidy hedge prune yearly, for a natural shape prune every 2-3 years or not at all.
