This resilient Australian evergreen makes a fabulous lawn, specimen, or street tree with its symmetrical rounded head, peeling bark and dense foliage. Gorgeous glossy leaves are oval and 4-6 inches long and casts a nice shady shadow. In the spring and summer white or cream-colored flowers lend a decorative touch. The reddish bark flakes to reveal a smooth gray trunk beneath. Also known as “Brisbane Box” it naturally tolerates smog, drought, and poor drainage while resisting pests and disease. A fast grower, expect it to top out at 25-35 feet with a 25 foot spread. It is happiest in Sunset Western Garden zones 15-17 and 19-24 and does well by the seacoast. It loves full sun and medium water. Boething Treeland Farms grows this in 15 gallons, 24” and 36” boxes. It is one of our most popular trees.
