  • Growing Information

    In The Garden

    In Australian gardens, this tree will prefer a cool, moist, Southern slope since it tolerates cold well, but is less fond of heat. Although it can ultimately reach a height of 20m or more, it is very slow-growing and should thus be considered a small to medium tree.

    Propagation

    It prefers an acidic, moist, well-drained soil that is rich in organic matter. It tolerates shade and lends itself well to pruning and clipping. In the US, this plant has been found to be susceptible to air pollution, but this should not be a problem in Australia.
