One of the largest buttressed trees of our native rainforest. Very attractive tree for planting in large gardens or rainforest restoration. Has proved quiet cold tolerant in recent frosts.

After previous post my Booyongs are 1.5 meters high. Red Cedars are over 2 meters high. Strangler figs are over 1 meter high and have success with Ball Nuts, Candlenuts, Ivory Curl, Flame Trees and Syzygium Francisii. All in Northern Victoria.

Very exited that my Black Booyong plants have survived their first 12 months of harsh frost and 40 degree temperatures in Victoria. My White Beech and Ficus Obliqua have also survivied. Unfortunately my Tamarinds didnt but will give them another go.
