You'll love this rugged little native tree as it has so many good qualities : bright orange berries, bronzey-green new leaves, a shady round crown, and adaptability to a wide range of soils and climates. Plus it's on many councils' approved planting lists as the roots aren't invasive and it rarely grows high enough to interfere with overhead wires.
