Acmena smithii ‘Red Head’

A large shrub/small tree offering dense foliage making it ideal for screening. Beautiful colour displays in the foliage with new growth being a deep red. Clusters of small white flowers are followed by edible bright purple berries in Ocotber -December. Fire retardant, cold tolerant, psyllid resistant and has low water requirements.


An excellent screening and hedging variety which responds well to pruning and shaping.


Plant in a well draining soil and fertilize regularly for optimal results.


The dense foliage can be pruned down to 1.5m in height.


Recommended for planting in March-November.
