Northern Scentless Rosewood


Scientific name: Synoum glandulosum

Common names: Northern Scentless Rosewood; Northern Rosewood; Scentless Rosewood

Overview: Synoum glandulosum is endemic to Australia where it is found along the eastern sub-tropical to tropical coast, usually on the margins of rainforests, in Queensland and New South Wales.

Its foliage is generally very dense and can retain branches low to the ground, making it a great species for sealing forest edges. A wide range of birds including pigeons, bowerbirds and currawong are attracted to the fruit. The seeds of Scentless Rosewood germinate readily when the aril is removed.
