A semi-evergree, Australian native tree with a striking Summer flowering display.
Features: A large, bushy tree with a stout, grey trunk and attractively patterned bark. The large, matt-green leaves have a felt-like covering and fall from the tree prior to flowering. Then, in Summer, the bare tree is covered in a profusion of 6cm, woolly, pink, bell-shaped flowers that hang in clusters at the ends of the branches.
Conditions: Enjoys a warm, sunny, moist, well drained position but will tolerate a wide range of soil conditions, and an occasional frost, once established.
For Best Results: Mulch to maintain soil moisture. Fertilise in Spring if required.
Planting Ideas and Uses:
- striking specimen tree
