Macadamia tetraphylla; common names, prickly macadamia, Queensland nut, rough-shelled bush nut is a tree in the family Proteaceae, native to southern Queensland and northern New South Wales in Australia. This species has dense foliage and grows up to 18 metres in height. The leaves, which have toothed margins, are 7 to 25 cm in length. As the species name M tetraphylla
implies, it usually has four leaves more or less equally spaced around each leaf node, whereas the other main commercial species M. integrifolia has a variable leaf number but usually three.
It has long, pendant white to creamy pink to purple flowers, followed by woody, rounded fruits which are 2 to 3 cm in diameter and contain edible seeds. As one common name implies, the shell of this species is often dimpled or "rough shelled" as compared to M. integrifolia, which has a smooth shell, and always white flowers. Planted in 2022
