A small genus of Australian trees belonging to the Myrtle family having leaves about eight inches in length and oval in shape. When full-grown, the Tristania forms a stately tree, being evergreen with an open head, and should make a good street tree.

Propagate by seeds sown in Spring (covering the seeds very lightly with light sandy soil), or by cuttings of half-ripe wood in the Fall, placed in sand in a cold frame and shaded from sun for two or three weeks. When they are rooted, plant them in three-inch pots, giving them larger pots as the roots require.
