Syzygium Cheetah - lilly pilly
Fast growing - hence the name, with bronze-red new growth after pruning. Small white flowers followed by big pink berries to attract wildlife. Grows to around 3m unclipped but can be pruned to 1m for low screens and hedges. (Although if you're going to clip it that hard, why not just choose Tiny Trev or Baby Boomer which are naturally dwarf?)
Syzygium 'Cheetah' - lilly pillyDESCRIPTION: Fast growing as the name suggests, ideal for those looking to create a privacy screen in a hurry. New growth has an attractive reddish tint. Huge pink berries. Denser and bushier than Resilience or Aussie Southern.
