Xanthostemon Fairhill Gold - golden penda
Native large shrub or small tree, unmistakeable in full fluffy golden flower. Ideal for landscaping, large pots when young, and wildlife or formal gardens. Birds such as lorikeets love the nectar-rich blossom.
Anecdotally they may flower more heavily before a cyclone - but we haven't studied the data on this!
