Plants appear leggy when young but thicken with age. A useful shelter tree for other plants, adapting to most soils and conditions. Do not plant near dwellings as branches are brittle.

Cream 3mm flowers in panicles, slightly perfumed. 3-lobed green fruit to 13mm, splitting to reveal seeds enclosed in orange aril. The outer bark is smooth, often coloured and patterned by various lichens. Yellow/green flowers form around September to November. The fruiting capsule matures from January to May.

Indigenous Australians used the saponin in the bark as a fish poison.  A good habitat tree, as fruit is eaten by many animals, insects and birds, including the Australian King Parrot.
