£69.99

Lovely fluffy yellow, sweetly scented ball-shaped flowers cover the ends of the branches from winter to spring. An evergreen tree with a pale green trunk and large, feathery glaucous leaves. It makes an ideal conservatory plant or in warmer gardens, can be planted in a sheltered spot against a south-facing wall. It will never reach the magnitude of those in its native Australia but it can grow to very large so it does need plenty of room in the garden.
