This handsome upright, spreading, semi-evergreen tree has a rounded canopy and is capable of reaching 35 m in height with a 10 – 15 m spread; under cultivation it rarely grows over 10 m tall.
The fragrant flowers, giving off a grapelike perfume, especially in the evening, are clustered on upright panicles about 45 cm long, with rust-coloured buds. Each flower is about 4 cm across, with 5 sepals and 5 translucent yellow crinkled petals that are hairy at the bottom. The trees begin to flower after about 4 years.
