Neat small-size flowering gum tree ideal for suburban gardens to lure in wild birds with those big fluffy lime flowers. Rich in nectar for wildlife and sweet-smelling for us, they appear right through the summer months for a Christmassy display. Cut a few for the house, leave the rest for the lorikeets to feast on.We love Summer Scentsation for the bright flower colour, compact size, long flowering season
