EUGENIA VENTENATII REDEYE LILLY PILLY tree in new zealand

EUGENIA VENTENATII REDEYE - LILLY PILLY

A popular hedging plant in New Zealand for the last twenty years this evergreen tree is fast growing and hardy. “Redeye” is a selection that Icon Tees identified over 10 years ago with consistent leaf form and colour. New growth is a brilliant red maturing to a deep green. The advantage of this selection is that unlike the seedling grown Eugenia, you get a hedge that has no variation. This plant has a multitude of uses and is versatile in all areas of the garden for shape, shelter, privacy screening and colour. It responds well to trimming and with regular clipping will form a manicured hedge or specimen. Will require some insect control.

Good Roots………

Roots are the anchors and feeding mechanism for a tree, if these are not right then the success of the tree is compromised.  What might look like a big strong tree may not be mirrored by it root system.  Icon Trees is one of the few nurseries that identify with this issue and dispose of these trees instead of growing them on to the next grade or supplying trees that will not successfully reach maturity.
