Tuckeroo. This is a great all round evergreen tree, with flushes of bright glowing new growth through Spring and Summer. A medium sized tree ranging between 8-15m tall at maturity it forms a dense rounded shape and offers a lovely shade solution for gardens. It is a smart selection for a range of locations including coastal exposure, tropical heat and works well as a specimen tree, wind break and street tree.
