This graceful, weeping tree grows to 6 m high. Its young stems, leaves, buds
and fruit are blue-green in colour and are covered in a showy white, waxy
bloom, that is, they are glaucous. The mature trunk has decorative minni-ritchi
bark—bark that peels in small curly flakes but does not detach. The trunk, bark,
foliage, flowers and fruit are all very appealing attributes.
