Hakea suaveolens (Sweet Hakea) - An evergreen shrub to small tree that grows to 10-20 feet tall. The stiff leaves are forked into many needle-like leaflets that have pointed tips. Fragrant small white flowers bloom in the fall and winter. Best in full sun. Drought and seaside tolerant. It is hardy down to about 20 degrees F. The sharpness of the leaf points and the massiveness of the shrub make it a good barrier plant - great near the coast.  This description is based on our research and observations of this plant as it grows in containers at our nursery, in our own garden and in other gardens. We also appreciate receiving feedback of any kind from those who have additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or have additional cultural tips that would aid others growing Hakea suaveolens .
