Uses: Ideal for street tree, large dense screen or hedge. Not suitable for courtyards or small gardens.

Tolerates cold and drought. Sweeper® Waterhousea suits well drained to heavy clay loams.
Care: Water as required for 8-13 weeks until established, top up water in dry periods. Plant in a well mulched garden (chunky mulch is recommended).
