Macadamia Bush NutBy Esteban Salazar CC BY-SA 2.0 (Photo Credits)
Botanical Name: Macadamia tetraphylla

This was the first Australian native food plant to be grown by non-indigenous Australians as a commercial crop. Genetic diversity of this valuable nut species has been reduced significantly through land clearing. Very hardy and easily grown along most of Australia's east coast and even down into Victoria.

Macadamia Bush Nut

They should cope with Melbourne cold, but may want supplemental water. Mine have survived -3C without protection or treatment. They are slower growing in the cold, but cope with 'mild' frost! | B - Trentham East, VIC 04-Jul-2017

What temperatures do you get down to in the Adelaide hills? I am planning to plant these as a windbreak/hedge for my orchard in alb/Wodonga region, and get a fair few frosts. and the occasional -3/-4 frost.
