This is an attractive little tree that usually grows on the banks of creeks and rivers in south-eastern Australia. The creamy-white flowers have a pleasant fragrance. We have grown many of these from seed for local revegetation projects (along creeks) and I have one doing well in my garden and now over 3 metres tall. Seed germinates best if boiling water is poured over the seed and allowed to cool, before sowing.
