Variable tree, from multi-stemmed shrub-like specimens of 8m to trees of 30m, with greyish-green bipinnate leaves. Bears cream ball-shaped flowers in spring. From NSW, ACT, Vic and Tas, but was also introduced in South Australia. Good for establishing a new garden and for stabilising sloping sites. When planted in part shade the species will grow taller with an open, sparse habit and slightly less silvery foliage.
