Angophora hispida – Dwarf Apple Gum

This Angophora is a small tree, growing to around 6 metres tall, with a mallee habit. It is summer flowering, bearing large clusters of attractive cream fluffy flowers which are a magnet to nectar feeding birds, insects and various colourful beetles. It has the gnarled and twisted growth of the larger Angophora costata, as well as beautiful bark and red new growth, with a smaller size. Tolerates a wide variety of soil types, and coastal exposure. Needs protection from frost when young, but more tolerant once established.
