The Acmena smithii is a popular native rainforest plant which grows up to 8 metres in height and up to 2.5 metres in width.
Adapts well to most conditions but prefers partial shade to full sun and grows best in a well-drained fertile soil.
It is ideal for hedges, topiary or general garden planting. The small white flowers which appear in summer time are followed by edible berries that will attract birds to the garden. Foliage is a deep glossy green.
