Denhamia bilocularis

Scientific NameDenhamia bilocularis
CategoriesShrubTree
Common Name(s)Orangebark
FamilyCelastraceae

Description

"Tree to 10 m; branchlets glabrous." (Flora of Australia)

Notes

Whilst Denhamia bilocularis could be produced in very large quantities, its potential for use in rehabilitation is considerably less than for Denhamia cunninghamii. We continue to develop the seed line and study its abilities in various applications. Once again, the collection and cleaning proceeds in a similar vain to Geijera parviflora less the inherent problems around seed quality known to be influenced by moisture stress.

Historical Notes

Distribution

"Occurs near Atherton, Qld, and from Biloela, Qld, to Dorrigo, N.S.W." (Flora of Australia)
