Description

One of the most decorative Eucalypts. The flower buds each have a brilliant red square cap with a raised cross on top. The caps burst open in the Autumn to reveal a spray of rich yellow flowers and stamens 5cm (2") across. The red buds and yellow stamens are present on the tree at the same time in large numbers, giving a magnificent display against the green foliage and smooth white bark of the trunk.

A quick growing and early flowering evergreen. It can be grown as a shrub by pruning hard after flowering or allowed to grow to around 5m (16'), occasionally reaching as much as 10m (33') with a spread of 4m (13').

Wildflower Seed Starter granules recommended to boost germination.
