SpecificationsCommonly known as Lilly Pilly, Acmena hemilampra is a medium to large Australian shrub or small tree, which produces thick emerald leaves with orange to yellow new growth, and fluffy cream flowers during spring, followed by clusters of round white berries from late autumn through to winter. Acmena hemilampra is an ideal plant for hedges or screening, as the foliage is very dense. It is best grown in moist well drained soil, with full sun to a lightly shaded position. Acmena hemilampra tolerates exposed windy areas. Acmena hemilampra is relatively low maintenance. Water well until established. Prune lightly after fruiting if a density is required. Acmena hemilampra can grow to a height of 8 metres and a width of 3 metres in a garden if not pruned or can grow much bigger if in a rain forrest climate.
