This is one of the best hedging lillipillies available, it is known by many names, "Aussie Compact", "Magenta Cherry", "Select" are a few. This lillipilly grows naturally dense and in reasonable soil will grow to 5 meters. It is one of "Psyllid free"  lillipillies and will grow in sun or light shade. 

Unfortunately not all varieties sold as Elite are Elite. Elite is naturally dense with slightly weeping side branches, the new growth doesn't have copper tones appearing light green against the older foliage.

Waterhousea floribunda

Waterhousea floribunda Select Form

This is a very fast growing lillipilly tree with lightly weeping foliage. The new growth is a pale green slowly changing to deep green on the older foliage. Floribunda is an excellent tree for screening in larger areas as it can maintain foliage low to the ground if unprimed. The photo on the right shows the first batch of our Waterhousea floribunda select. We have been looking for better forms of the tree for years and have finally settled on this form due to it's excellent form and growth habit. all of the trees grown by ASPLEY NURSERY in the future will be cutting grown from this form giving the landscaper and designer a guaranteed result  and even performance.

It's general habit is a medium tree to 10m though this is effected by availability of water and soil type. It grows as a native to South East Queensland.
