Luscious® Tristaniopsis is a vastly improved form of Tristaniopsis laurina. Wow these leaves are big. Its leaves are almost double the size of the original with a gorgeous lush shiny appearance.
These are topped off with copper new growth at certain times of the year. Delightful fragrant yellow flowers complete the package. Luscious® Tristaniopsis makes a great Australian native alternative to the exotic magnolia.
It’s highly suited for street planting, garden features, or for an elegant shade tree. Luscious® Tristaniopsis thrives in a range of conditions. It will tolerate frosts and drought, and a wide array of soil types.
Luscious® Tristaniopsis will grow to 7-12m tall and will grow in full sun to part shade. The trunk is also a great feature as the bark has a striking port colour that peels back revealing a mottled cream stem. What more could you ask for? Luscious truly is a great Aussie tree.
