Has a pronounced intramarginal vein, so much so that it looks three-veined.
White and fluffy flowers in clusters, Nov to Jan followed by red-black berry ripe Feb to Mar.
Propagate from fresh seed.
Fruit eaten by Green Catbird, Lewin’s honeyeater and Regent bowerbird. Silver-grey timber is hard and tough, thus the name malletwood.
