The foliage of Eucryphia moorei is dark green and roundish. Fragrant white to off-white flowers appear in the summer. A mature plant can be cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time. The beautiful blooms appear in sprays along the stems, usually in July and are produced in abundance if the position is sunny and sheltered from cold winds.

The Eucryphia moorei is not only easy to grow and maintain, but also tolerant of salt exposure and seaside conditions, making it an ideal plant for coastal areas. It does best in a full sun to semi-shade position with regular watering and moderate moisture. Fertilize with a slow release fertilizer each season. This species can be grown in USDA Zone 9-11 and prefers a moist well-drained soil.

In colder regions, it is best grown in a pot and placed in a warm, sheltered location during the winter. Ensure that the soil is kept slightly moist, but not waterlogged, and fertilize when necessary. In extreme conditions, you can even bring the container indoors. When the temperatures rise and reach a safe level, you can place the pot back in its original position.
