  • Description

  • Notes

Small evergreen tree or large shrub grows at a moderate rate. Can vary in size from 10'-30' tall to 10'-20' wide. The variation in size can be due to genetic diversity. Leaves are narrow, ash-green with fine hairs. The branches tend to be weepy. Cream colored ball-shaped flowers appear in spring and are follwed by reddish brown pods. This tree works well providing shade in small spaces. Native to Australia. - Arid Zone Trees
