Although not as vivid as that of some of the trees on this property, the new growth of bolly wood or bolly gum (Neolitsea dealbata) is one of my favourites. The trees, which occur along the rainforest edge, are covered in big, soft, fluffy, pearl white new leaves that are as decorative as flowers.
As the leaves grow, they turn light green, then pale milk chocolate before maturing into the shiny two-tone of the adult form. These new leaves haven't quite reached milk chocolate stage yet, but it won't be long.
You don't need a garden full of bright flowers when the trees put on shows like this.
