Corduroy tamarind

Description

Corduroy Tamarind

Let’s hear it for the home team.

Corduroy tamarind's real name is Mischarytera lautereriana, it’s an Australian native rainforest tree with a beautifully rounded canopy. Foliage emerges a bright pinky-red that gives a vibrant pop of colour after a dreary winter.

The pink flush matures into a fresh green canopy that casts dappled shade on your lawn. In the warmer months, small flowers appear before developing into little bird-attracting fruits.

There’s no need to be scared of growing a tree. They start small and with the right care grow rapidly into strong, structural features that attract wildlife.  This is a quick grower if you keep up the watering - it’ll reach ten metres.

Trivia time! The name corduroy comes from the trunk’s texture.

Quick Facts:

  • What to use me for: I’m an easy-to-grow ornamental feature tree that attracts wildlife and creates dappled shade.
  • I grow to: I’ll reach ten metres.
  • Where to place me: I like full sun and part shade.
  • How far to space me:  I get pretty big and need 2-3 metres of elbow room.
  • Soil Conditions: I’m a native tree so deal with our soils well, but I do like a moist and fertile home ground. If your soil is a bit thin and tired, beef it up with well-rotted manure and some weed suppressing mulch.

Our plants are beautifully grown, mature tube stock with well-developed roots. They are guaranteed sun-hardened, can be planted directly into the ground and are excellent performers for your garden.

We carefully package your plants into a customised box to ensure safe transport, healthy plants and delivery to your door

Please take care when choosing your plants. Some plants are poisonous and individuals may be more sensitive or react differently
