A beautiful evergreen native tree which will in (a great deal of) time can grow to 5m tall and 3m wide.
It is perfect for a small garden as a backdrop and as a specimen small tree and will grow in damper parts of the garden.
It bears pretty sprays of creamy white flowers late spring which has a honey perfume. All year round it is a joy to grown with upright spreading branches with small green leaves which are beautifully marbled – hence the common name of ‘marble leaf’.
Happy to grow in sun or semi shade it is both frost hardy and tolerant of coastal condition.
If you can only grow 1 tree in your patch this would be hard to beat.
Trees are currently 60-90cm height growing in 1.2 litre pot. Great size for planting out.
