Corymbia ficifolia 'Wild Sunset'

Red Flowering Gum

This grafted gum is smaller growing and has a compact habit, forming a very dense canopy. The foliage is deep green and leathery in texture with new growth emerging a bronzy tinge. During the warmer months large clusters of orange-red flowers appear covering the tree with a stand out display of spectacular colour, attracting and providing food for nectar loving birds.
