Flowers of the Lilly Pilly

My Lilly Pilly (Syzygium smithii) tree has burst into flower. The cream-white flowers appear in panicles at the end of branches.

The above photo, shows the glossy dark-green leaves of the Common Lilly Pilly. New growth has a reddish tinge. As Australia moves from summer into the cooler months the flowers will be replaced by red berries.
