Native. An extremely attractive and graceful evergreen tree which is quick to establish and easy to grow. Fresh green foliage all year round. In summer star shaped, honey scented white flowers appear en masse and almost smother the foliage with their display. Plant in sun or semi-shade.
A very useful tree where quick screening is required. Makes a nice back-ground of foliage as well. Should be used more in planting schemes in my opinion. Tolerates most conditions except for really harsh frost when young.
