Corymbia ficifolia or flowering gum is one spectacular tree. Ranging in height from 3-10 metres, these are best purchased as grafted trees to ensure a known colour and height.
Great to use as a street, feature or habitat tree as the birds and bees love the nectar from the summer flowers. Useful as a screen or prune off the lower branches to accentuate the trunk.
Corymbia ficifolia will take a range of soil conditions, providing the soil is well-drained. They dislike wet feet and humidity but will tolerate a light frost once mature. Give them a sunny spot and enough water to get them through the dry months and they’ll reward you with a spectacular show.
