Garrya elliptica

Silk Tassel Bush

This is a great winter flowering tree growing to 8m tall. It is a very distinctive tree, with long tassel-like flowers. Its leaves are glossy on top and give it good tolerance to industrial and coastal pollution. But underneath, the leaves are wonderfully woolly and quite soft.
