A medium hardy small tree to 5mtr by 5mtr wide if unchecked, creates a great screen as this is a very dense shrub. Can provide masses of crimson fluffy pom-poms from October through to May. Bird attracting. Splendid lime/silver coloured foliage adds to its appeal.
Could be used as a feature plant in a tub or a specimen for the garden.
Suitable for coastal gardens this plant establishes quickly, is salt tolerant and can be a good windbreak.
