The masses of cream flowers against the vibrant green leaves – especially when set against the blue sky are just magnificent. So unpruned it shall remain!!
This tree is from the proteaceae family (same as grevilleas and waratahs) and you can see in the close-up of the flower the similarities.
It is a common tree in northern NSW rainforests and is often used as street trees. The street trees are pruned to give a weeping top heavy display which is stunning but I prefer the tree to grow in my garden as it will with not a lot of intervention!
