B.celsissimais a tall tree to 30 metres in height in its natural habitat but is much smaller in cultivation, particularly in cooler climates where it rarely exceeds 7-8 metres. It has attractive foliage - the juvenile leaves are often lobed while the new growth is an attractive bronze colour. Mature leaves are elliptical and entire and about 150 mm long. Flowers are white to cream and occur in summer in large racemes up to 200 mm long. The flowers are well displayed at the ends of the branches. 


The ivory curl plant performs well in cultivation even in much cooler areas to its natural habitat. Good specimens can be found in Sydney and Melbourne. It requires a reasonably well drained, moist soil and a sunny position. 


Propagation is reasonably easy from seed which should be sown when fresh. Cuttings of hardened, current season's growth are also successful.
