On today’s garden wandering I found that there was still one Powderpuff Lilly Pilly – Syzigium wilsonii subsp. wilsonii – flowering. The others in another section of the garden finished a month ago. These plants have dooping leaves with large gorgeous deep red flowers with starry tips, followed by white berries. The new leaf growth starts as a pink and grades through to the darker green mature leaves. They are my favourite flowers of the lilly pilly family and fortunately grow very well in this Northern NSW region where they are found in local rainforests. I completed this linocut design of the powderpuff lilly pilly some years back now.
