Eucalyptus forrestiana

Fushia Gum

This compact tree is native to a small area near Esperance in Western Australia. Its most striking feature is the display of bright red flower buds which hang on the tree before opening to reveal clusters of yellow stamens from summer through to autumn. Foliage is dark green and the bark is smooth and grey, peeling off in long ribbons during summer.
