musk-scented shrub or tree of southern and southeastern Australia having creamy-yellow flower heads
Olearia argophylla is a species of flowering plant in the Asteraceae family. Its common names are musk daisybush, musktree, muskwood and silvershrub. It is found in Australia, specifically in New South Wales, Tasmania and Victoria. It grows as a tall shrub or tree characteristic of wet sclerophyll forest. Its leaves are large and broad, coarsely toothed, green on top and silver-white underneath. The grain of the wood is mainly straight, but burls near the base of the tree are prized for their brown swirls that often suggest the appearance of small faces or animals peering out of the wood, making them highly sought after by woodworkers.
