Tree Angophora costata 'ST2 Boronia' Smoothbarked Apple Myrtle, Rusty Gum




Description This attractive Australian native tree is loved for its smooth bark that is slightly purple in colour. It has large and twisted limbs, a very large expanded trunk base, white flower clusters in spring and beautiful red new growth. Ours is smaller in stature than the original so it is more suitable for urban landscapes.    
Mature Size 8 x 8m    
Uses A versatile tree for sandy dry areas. Great for parks too and often seen in forest plantings. While ours is smaller in size and suitable for urban gardens it still needs space to show off its broad form. A nice selection for encouraging native habitat.    
Position & Soil Will tolerate most soils and conditions but especially likes sandy soils. Prefers a full sun position.
