Leaves, bark and flowers
Evergreen. Narrow pendulous leaves form a dense shaggy umbrella shape as the tree matures. The species can live to a great age and develop a characteristic thick, gnarled trunk. Flowering is variable depending on position and weather conditions for the year. Generally however the tree will develop tiny white flowers along the branches in spring.
Planted extensively throughout the City, espeically in the inland areas such as Inglewood and Mount Lawley. A good example can also be seen at the eastern end of Sorrento Street, North Beach.
