Fluffy red flowers in summer (and other times of the year in warmer areas) make this native tree popular with gardeners and native birds alike. Great gumnuts too for keen flower arrangers!

Corymbia ficifolia - red flowering gum

DESCRIPTION: Striking native gum of versatile height for small gardens, with long slender dark leaves, red flowerbuds, and large vibrant tufty yellow flowers in autumn followed by large gumnuts
PLANTING: Sow seeds year-round in warmer regions, when frost has passed in colder ones. Natives can require a little more care than the average flowering perennial, but are well worth the effort. Swo on the surface of sandy soil, cover lightly, water and keep moist. A sprinkle of Mr Fothergill's seed starter granules will help move things along. Cover trays with a layer of clear plastic to help retain moisture, remove plastic once seedlings begin to emerge and place in a warm shady spot. Transfer seedlings at approximately 5cm high. Prefers free draining-sandy soil and full sun. 
CARE: Water seedlings regularly until established and as the plants mature. Tolerates drought once established. Mulch plants to retain moisture in the soil and fertilise annually in spring using a native slow release fertiliser.
