Tree Tristaniopsis laurina 'DOW10' Luscious® PBR' Kanooka Gum




Description An Australian native, this is an updated version of the straight Tristaniopsis laurina. Leaves are dark green, shiny and large - and as the name suggests, luscious in appearance! New growth starts out a distinctive copper colour and further interest appears over time with the branches developing deep purple coloured bark which peels back to reveal a smooth, cream trunk. Flowers are yellow and sweetly perfumed, appearing in clusters through summer.    
Mature Size 8 x 4m    
Uses Its dense form makes for an attractive hedge or screen. A great summer shade tree or feature tree.    
Position & Soil This variety tolerates a wide range of soil and climate conditions including frost. Not suited to very dry climates or exposure to hot winds without regular watering.
