A fast-growing evergreen shrub or small tree with long, thin leaves and soft pale yellow pom-pom like flowers in winter and spring. Native to Australia. This tree is not hardy in the midland counties of Ireland, but thrives near the sea. To create a robust and healthy plant, be brave, and cut it in halfwithin one year of planting, which will encourage the roots to catch up with the tree. Best in well-drained soil in a sunny spot. There are some fine specimens around Dublin, where it makes a lovely everygreen tree. Plants c 120 cm tall in a 5 litre pot. Please note: items displayed on this website may not be in stock in each of our shops.
