This tree species occurs in evergreen forest and woodland habitats where there is high rainfall or ground water. Its range of seasonal features make this a good choice for the garden. In spring it bears white flowers and an unusual flush of white leaves, the red fruits of late summer are showy and in winter its leaves turn fiery before falling.

Certain parts from the tree are used to produce antidiuretics, lotions for eye infections, as well as antiseptics.
