In the wild in the rainforests of north Queensland it can grow into a small to medium sized tree but it rarely grows beyond shrub dimensions in cultivation, particularly in cooler climates such as Melbourne. It flowers in autumn, with the long creamy flowerheads often completely hiding the dark green glossy foliage. It makes a wonderful feature plant and should be trimmed back behind the spent flowers.
