Found wild down the entire Australian east coast, Acmena smithii can appear as a fair-sized tree to a low-ish shrub. ‘Sublime' is one of the more robust forms. A dense cover of dark green, fig-like and psyllid-resistant foliage right down to the ground lends itself to screening. Lime green new growth – instead of the copper-reds of so many other lilly pillies – offers a modest backdrop to more colourful foreground plantings.
