Fast growing shrub or small tree with attractive bluish-green foliage. Flowers are balls of soft to deep mauve stamens that are clustered at the ends of the branches. The dense foliage makes these shrubs useful as wind breaks or screens as well as formal or informal hedges. Suited to most soil types. Tolerant of coastal conditions and extended dry periods but responds well to additional watering.
