Although it can be a relatively fast-growing evergreen tree, this plant is often grown as an annual for foliage effect, making a bushy shrub to 3m, clad in attractive, olive-green, fern-like leaves which are paler beneath. Racemes of attractive, fragrant golden-orange bottlebrush-like blooms open in the spring and these are often used commercially for honey production. It is not related to the true oaks, Quercus, and is actually a native of eastern coastal Australia. Before the advent of aluminium, its timber was widely used for external window joinery, as it is resistant to wood rot and it has been used in the manufacture of furniture, cabinetry, fences and guitars. It has also gained the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit.
