This is an attractive Australian native that is popular as a street tree due to its dark green foliage, compact height, rounded form and non-invasive root system.
Cream flowers appear during autumn followed by bright orange fruit making it a favourite tree for birds too.
The value of this tree lies in its low habit and hardiness, withstanding harsh coastal positions and even saline soils.
Well drained sandy soil.
Will tolerate saline soils and salty water.
It’s hardy, tolerates frost and drought once established, has nice leaf colour and jolly orange berries, and is suited to all soil types, even clay.
