  • Plant ID: Brush Box (Lophostemon confertus) Plant ID: Brush Box Genus: Lophostemon Species: confertus Family: MYRTACEAE Common name: Brush Box Plant type: Evergreen Origin: Coastal forests of New South Wales and Queensland A very adaptable tree that can be vigorous and long lived. Make no mistake, this tree is very comfortable growing large, so plan your spacing properly. One of the most common lopped trees in Sydney as well as Australia (I suppose we didn't realize how big they get in both height and width, lol). When it comes to surviving in the dynamic changing environments of modern cities, the Brush Box is a warrior that has proven itself time and time again. Habit/Form: A single trunk that can get quite large/thick along with branches that can also get quite large. This tree can reach quite massive heights (up to 50m, expect to see it between 15m-30m) but can also be wide/lengthy-medium to large domed. Foliage generally masses toward the ends of branches. Although a young Brush Box can have a smooth pale green trunk, they age into a distinctive rough stout trunk, fibrous reddish-brown bark (and fibrous grey on older trees) that massively sheds. This fibrous peeling/shedding bark can be seen on 3/4 of the tree from base to branches. The fibrous bark then transitions into smooth pale green or cream branches. Bark can also be pinkish-brown, peeling from base to mid, turning to smooth reddish trunk at the upper top of tree. Leaves: Most Brush Box leaves are distinctively grouped (usually in groups of 5 leaves ...
