Pom­pon tree

Better Homes and Gardens (Australia) - - Flower Power -

From south­ern and eastern Africa, the pom­pon tree adapts well to Aus­tralia’s sim­i­larly mild cli­mate. The flow­ers, lit­tle spheres of starry pink blooms that open from lol­lipop-like buds, ap­pear in late spring and their re­mains, which dry hard, are dec­o­ra­tive enough to use in ar­range­ments. Early prun­ing lets you grow them as multi-stemmed shrubs or as short sin­gle-trunked trees. Prune straight af­ter bloom.
