Silver Streak is shorter and fatter than Silver Sensation, with an upright habit and a silvery-lime colouration, and it makes a beautiful native Christmas tree. It likes dry summers, lots of light, very free-draining conditions; and it will stand up to coastal salty winds and sandy soil - so if you're in the southern states it's a perfect feature shrub or privacy screen windbreak.
