Sweeper® Waterhousea is a heavily weeping form of Waterhousea, with gorgeous lush new growth and an elegant rippled leaf.
It produces large clusters of white flowers in summer and its foliage is much denser. Excellent for large dense screening, a street tree or planting near hard scapes, as it creates a softening effect in a harsh concrete environment.
