Tuckeroo
(Cupaniopsis anacardioides)

Australian native feature tree with a rounded shape and evergreen foliage. The roots are non invasive making it a popular with landscapers and often used in council gardens. Tuckeroo plants establish quickly and live for 50 - 60 years at a tidy height of 5-8 metres. 

The Tuckeroo is a useful small tree for coastal plantings in warm areas. It has attractive glossy green large leaves, smooth grey bark, and a spreading crown shape, making it a good shade and street tree. It has green-yellow flowers in spring followed by decorative orange-yellow seed pods in summer. A good low maintenance plant rarely troubled by pests or disease.

Mulch and water well until the plant is established, usually around 12 weeks. Prune regularly to maintain a dense rounded growth habit and fertilise with slow release native fertiliser during spring.

Also known as the 'Carrot Wood', 'Beach Tamarind' tree, the Tuckeroo is a food source for many different butterfly species -  http://lepidoptera.butterflyhouse.com.au/plants/sapi/cupaniopsis-anacardioides.html
