Syzygium Aussie Compact - lilly pilly
Good tough fast grower to 3m, compact (unsurprisingly!), tightly-growing with a reddish bronze tinge when young. Excellent for topiary - clip to shape to encourage leaf colour.
Like all lilly pillys, Aussie Compact is great for hedging and edging, and happy in a pot. Hot pink berries are a bonus for you and wildlife.
