Comments: A very large tree with evergreen, dense foliage with rusty color on undersides. Highly fragrant, white flowers in spring and early summer. It is used as screen and as a lawn specimen where it probably should not be in many situations. Few plants will grow under its capopy. It has some salt tolerance.
