While you may seek privacy screening on the sunny side of your home, you may also want to take advantage of what light is available in winter ~ so in steps Winter Light™. While the long fine openly spaced leaves will effectively block out the sun’s rays on hot days, they allow light to filter through in winter, without diminishing its screening potential. A fine clean trunk adds to the feeling of lightness, while the foliage is all but hidden by nectar-rich white blossom in summer and autumn ~ which makes honey-eating birds happy residents. Winter Light™ will grow in a range of climates from cool temperate to sub tropical and semi arid, in well drained clay or sandy loam. Tolerates frost and near coastal sites. A very useful small tree for shelter belts and broad acre windbreaks.
