Which tree bears this flower?

Do you know which tree produces this white 'urchin' looking flower?

 

The tree has attractive grey green and cream patchwork bark.

 

Its leaves are narrow and grey – green when matured and it is well suited as a specimen tree to provide lovely soft contrast in parks and large gardens.

 

Evergreen.  Mature height 12-17m.

 

At the Barcham Trees nursery we have potted up 100 of these trees, 35-40cm tall in 5 litre pots, ready for planting from 1st September 2019.

 

Let me know what you think it is!

I guessed the genus correctly and found the specific tree on your site (I'll not spoil it for others).

 

How early in their life do they flower and do you know if bees like them?
