Its a very hardy tree, and will survive drought and frost. A good street tree and creates a great avenue. Here inMelbourne in Westgarth, the council has ussed them to line a main road, and the show in Spring time is quite something to behold!!!!
So if your looking for a tree that is tough and pretty, will lose its leaves in winter,with the added bonus of giving you plenty of shade in Summer time, this is a good choice. But do keep in mind the fruit. They are definitely not edible, and can self seed.
Speaking of drought and heat......( and I know many readers in the Northern hemisphere are probably totally over our droughts down south), a friend of mind sent me some pics of a very thirsty koala being helped by some understanding people. They really are cute.
