Looking for a beautiful shade tree?

Maranthes Corymbosa is a NT Native Tree boasting a cooling shade canopy and a lovely weeping habit!

This fast growing tree is very hardy, embracing a variety of conditions that the Tropics can throw at it. Growing between 10 and 12 metres tall, this tree will drop temperatures in your backyard and create a cool relaxing area to enjoy!

During the months of June/July it will explode with beautiful white flowers that will attract a glorious array or bird-life to your garden.  It will also produce a delicious orange berry which is a well known bush food.

And don't worry if your soil is riddled with clay or not ideal - these NT beauties will survive it and thrive to create your beautiful shade tree!
