Has large bunches of creamy white flowers that birds absolutely love! Its’ hairy-stemmed flowers appear from late Spring through to early Summer. An attractive tree with orange-brown bark when young and grey bark when older, which flakes off in strips, it also has wonderfully gnarled branches and a coarse trunk. Preferring well drained soil, it can often be found growing in sandy spots and will even tolerate some coastal exposure. Although it will handle cold and even frost, new growth and trees under 1m are not very frost tolerant at all so may need to be protected for a time.
Mostly found around Sydney and The Hawesbury in New South Wales, it is now being cultivated successfully further South in Victoria. Mature specimens are also drought and frost resistant, making it a popular tree in streets, parks, sports grounds, gardens, and reserves.
