Corymbia - red flowering gum

Re-stock: in 8-12 weeks

An Aussie garden favourite! Flowering gums produce a spectacular display of colour and ficifolia is arguably the best. Blooms through summer - and sometimes in other months; the ones here on the Sunshine Coast are flowering in April. Plant as a specimen or feature tree in garden settings.

Even happy in windswept coastal gardens (it may grow smaller than in a sheltered spot.) Prefers dry summers and low-humidity climates, though it grows fine around the Sunshine Coast QLD. 

Big chunky gumnuts for keen flower arrangers and Christmas crafters.

Corymbia ficifolia - red flowering gum

APPEARANCE : Classic Australian native garden tree that bursts to life with clusters of fiery red bird-attracting flowers each summer (and occasionally other times too in warmer climates). Big gumnuts.
ORIGIN : Found in the wild in a small section of south west WA, but has made its home across Australia
USE FOR : Excellent for screening or as a specimen tree. Ideal for large gardens; and smaller gardens if pruned hard. Flowers and gumnuts ideal for flower arranging.
CLIMATE : Tolerates light frost and dry conditions once established. Doesn't like FNQ tropical humidity
PLANTING: Plant in well drained soil in full sun; in the wild it grows in sandy low-nutrient soils. Avoid clay and rich loam soils. Apply mulch and continue to water regularly until the plant is established. Usually around 12 weeks. Fertilise using native fertiliser early spring.
CARE : Tip prune while young to encourage a dense rounded shape. Stake and protect from strong wind and frost until the plant is established.
HEIGHT :  Up to 10 m.
YOUR PLANTS : These are tubestock plants, healthy young plants with new roots that will establish quickly in your garden. The pot size is 80mm high and 42 mm wide.
You can see an example in the image gallery.
