Silver buttonwood is an assortment of buttonwood that normally develops as a low expanding bush with a few trunks, yet under ideal circumstances silver buttonwood can turn into an attractive jar formed tree up to 50 ft (15.2 m) tall with a 20 ft (6.1 m) spread. The evergreen leaves are elliptical to spear formed, 2-4 in (5.1-10.2 cm) long and organized on the other hand. Though normal buttonwood has glabrous (bare) leaves, the leaves of silver buttonwood are covered with a thick mat of velvety hairs which confers a wonderful silver-dark tone to the plant. The blossoms are subtle however the natural product groups are somewhat garish tanish red cone-like fastens, each containing numerous small organic products. The cultivar, 'Momba', has an exceptionally thick crown and is more modest.
