Lily Pilly lost its leaves over a period of 6-8 months. started with curly leaf then small areas became bare.

have four lily pillys in a row along driveway fence. 8 yrs old, shaped and three are healthy but fourth one has slowly over a period of 6-8 months leaves went yellow in colour and now very few leaves on plant. Structure and branches left but are dry.

Answer: This is a very common problem in Lilly Pillys. It is caused by a sap sucking insect called a psyllid. These pests take advantage of weak and stressed plants. Help your plants to stay healthy by keeping the soil moist and feeding them regularly with Yates Dynamic Lifter Soil Improver & Plant Fertiliser. Psyllid resistant varieties of lilly pillies are also available.
