Phebalium squameum (Satin Wood) Details

Phebalium squameum is a fast-growing, small tree featuring aromatic, olive-like leaves which are narrow, dull green above and silver-white underneath. Small, cream-coloured flowers are borne through spring amidst the foliage. It typically grows to 4 m tall and 1 m wide, though can easily be contained with trimming. It performs best when grown in full sun on a well-drained site, and is hardy to wind, coastal environments, frost, and dry periods. It will not tolerate heavy, wet soils. This variety of Phebalium is commonly grown for shelter, screening, or trimmed into a hedge.
