White Bean

$14.90

White Bean is a fast growing tree found on the Eastern seaboard, north from the Clarence River, NSW to North Qld and into SE Asia. It has a handsome form, as the tree develops an open branched structure, and the compound leaves cluster at the ends of the branches giving the foliage a feathery look. Attaining a maximum height of 35m and a stem diameter of up to 80cm when fully grown, it is a wonderful addition to rainforest regeneration plantings. It is well adapted to dry periods and does like good drainage in wet times.
