Aniseed Myrtle (Syzygium anisatum).
This stunning rainforest tree is both highly ornamental and a very desirable for its bush food characteristics. It’s quite rare in the wild, native to a few areas of North East New South Wales. The tree can reach up to 45 metres in a rainforest environment but most often 8-10 metres as a small to medium tree in open garden situations. It’s usually harvested as a hedge to 2-3 metres in bush food plantations. The plant has a dense cover of fine lush green aniseed scented and flavoured foliage throughout the year with white scented flowers in the spring.
