Corymbia - red flowering gum

Quick Overview

Aussie garden favourite! Flowering Gums produce a spectacular display of colour through summer and ficifolia is arguably the best. Plant as a specimen or feature in large garden settings. Even happy in windswept coastal gardens (though it may grow smaller than in a sheltered spot.) Big gumnuts for keen flower arrangers and crafters.

We can't ship this product to South Australia for biosecurity reasons.

Corymbia ficifolia- red flowering gum
DESCRIPTION: Classic Australian native tree that bursts to life with clusters of fiery red bird-attracting flowers each summer (and occasionally other times too in warmer climates).
USES: Excellent for screening or as a specimen tree. Ideal for large gardens.
CARE: Tip prune while young to encourage a dense rounded shape. Stake and protect from strong wind and frost until the plant is established.
PLANTING: Plant in well drained soil in full sun. Apply mulch and continue to water regularly until the plant is established. Usually around 12 weeks. Fertilise using native fertiliser early spring. Avoid clay soils. Tolerates frost and dry conditions once established.
HEIGHT:  Up to 10 m.
PLEASE NOTE: These are tube-stock plants, with the benefit of being a young plant they will establish quickly in your garden. The average size of your plants will be 15 -25 cm in height including the pot height of 80 mm x 42 mm wide.
