Lilly Pilly ID

Hi Everyone,

I recently bought a house with a really nice garden which I'm working on trying to improve myself now :) I'm now trying to ID some trees along the back side fence, as I'd like to plant some more of them. At the moment, there's 5 of these trees planted about 1 meter apart, they are about 2-3 meters tall and not to dense at the base . I suspect they maybe "Hinterland Gold Lilly Pilly", but I'm far from sure and certainly not an expert.

This is the only photo I have for now, but I'll try to get a better one soon. Any help is greatly appreciated :) Thank you!

I've got a number of 'Lilly Pilly's' in (Syzygium, Acmena) but I can confirm any look exactly like this one. Might be an idea to wait and see if they flower.

I agree with Funnel web - this doesn't look like a Lilly Pilly. I think you will find that it's Viburnum odoratissimum.

Yeah Ted, I've got one of them in and it does look just like the picture. Good to hear from you, you should drop by more often.

Thanks for the posts guys! I was just going off Lilly Pilly originally as that's what my neighbour thought it was. I'll definitely do some research on Viburnum odoratissimum now. Thanks again :)
