This medium to large Australian rainforest tree enjoys sub-tropical to tropical climates but will also grow in temperate areas, albeit smaller in stature.
Its evergreen foliage is a backdrop to highly ornamental red-orange circular flowers in Summer. It will grow well in most soil types, but does best in rich, loamy, fertile soil and sun to part shade. Slow growing initially, it’s ideal as a statement or ornamental tree and for creating shade, and a hardy nature also means it’s called on as a street tree in many locations such as Sydney and Melbourne.
