A large tree to about 60' with a dense, rounded crown. The flowers are bell-shaped, a cream color with a reddish-brown inside and appear in summer. Not fussy about soil types, frost tolerant and drought tolerant as well. An excellent street or landscape tree. The trunk when young is shaped like a bottle, but loses this wide base as it ages. Can also be used for fodder. Reported as hardy to about +20 degrees F. Well worth trying for something different in the landscape. Native: Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria.
