This is a stunning plant in cultivation where it grows into a spectacular flowering medium to large shrub. In the wild in the rainforests of north Queensland it can grow into a small to medium sized tree but it rarely grows beyond shrub dimensions in cultivation, particularly in cooler climates such as Melbourne. It flowers in autumn, with the long creamy flowerheads often completely hiding the dark green glossy foliage. It makes a wonderful feature plant and should be trimmed back behind the spent flowerheads after flowering when it will also benefit from a handful or two (depending on the size of the plant) of low phosphorus native plant fertiliser.
