A stunning Australian native tree with golden flowers!
Myrtaceae - No shipment to WA or TAS
This is an outstanding evergreen rainforest tree that can reach up to 20m in its native habitat but usually only growing 5 to 8m tall in cultivation, its native range is in coastal rainforest in north QLD from Townsville up to Cape York Peninsula but also performs well further south.
It has glossy green lance shaped leaved to 15cm long and a mass of spectacular rounded clusters of flowers occur from Summer to Autumn but can flower at any time, these flowers grow at the ends of branches and attract nectar feeding birds, bees, butterflies and other insects and small mammals.
This species responds well to pruning so can be cut down to form a large hedge or just to keep a shorter bushier habit.
Performs best in subtropical to tropical climates in full sun in moist well drained soil.
Germination from seed is easy with no need for pre-treatment but can be slow.
This is an outstanding choice as a feature tree, large hedge, screen or windbreak, is used extensively as a street tree and is cyclone resistant.
