It is a slender, open tree with a weeping habit and autumn/winter pink/red flowers that are pendulant and normally grouped in threes. A delightful tree, especially when clumped in groups of three or four, that is rare and endangered in its native locations, but has been suitably cultivated throughout the Western Austalian south-west.
