Eucalyptus sideroxylon rosea

Red Flowering Ironbark

This Australian native tree is indigenous to eastern Australia. It has distinctive, very dark brown to black coloured bark which is deeply furrowed and does not shed. The dramatic bark provides great contrast to the foliage which is blueish-grey-green in colour. From winter to early spring, pink to red flowers are borne in clusters of seven. This tree creates a great habitat for native fauna and is a valuable source for honey production.
