Fast growing, medium sized tree that is a popular cabinet timber due to its fantastic colouring, it produces fine timber with yellow banding and red-brown stripes. The timber is similar to Australian Red Cedar but the tree is easier to grow. The wood has a strong aroma of onions which is reputed to repel insects such as cockroaches. Tolerant of some frost.
