Tristaniopsis laurina

Kanooka Gum

Preferring moist, well-drained sites, this variety occurs naturally along the east coast of Australia from the Brisbane River in Queensland all the way through to Gippsland in Victoria. A relatively slow grower, this evergreen Australian native has an oval form, producing clusters of yellowish-white flowers during the warmer months. Bark is smooth and light grey in colour, becoming scaly with maturity.
