A gardening secret grown in the botanic gardens of Adelaide and Melbourne, the Black Booyong has enormous potential for gardens and farms throughout Australia to mitigate against our warming climate. With massive buttresses that form in cool climates and fast-growing when given well-manured ground to start, this Aussie native should be much more widely planted as a feature or shade tree. In addition to the striking buttresses, white bell shaped flowers in summer and deep green glossy palmate leaves with slight undulation make for all year round interest. An ideal evergreen tree for form, function and feature in the garden. Fast growth rate.
Plant in full sun or part shade in fertile soil. Fast growing and drought tolerant once established.
