Puffball Lilly Pilly

This is the beautiful flower of the Puffball Lilly Pilly (Syzygium Wilsonii) one of the many varieties of Lilly Pilly trees in Australia. When the berries develop we make cordials, jams and sauces from them. They have a unique and delicate flavour.
Very pretty love the colour

Lovely close-up of a pretty flower. We have a lilly pilly in our garden, but only a basic white flower, no where near as nice as yours.

Beautiful, do the berries develop on the puffball? Don't think we have those here in the US would love a taste of the jam

@rmkgreene No, I don't think these grow anywhere else in the world. The berries follow the flower. The jam is delicious and so is the cordial. If you click on the lilly pilly tag, I think you'll see a collage that I did a couple of years ago where I made jam and cordial. It should still be there. You can also see the berries.
