SpecificationsThis stunning, small native tree is spectacular. Bearing brilliant large, scarlet-red, staminate flower clusters during spring and summer this prolific flowering small tree is a great addition to any garden, large or small. The leaves are large, glossy dark green with a lighter underside and have a weeping habit. This tree is also ideal for parks and would be a strong feature in streetscapes. Suitable to most soil types makes it a versatile plant in many situations, tolerating frosts and drought once established/settled. Suitable to most areas in Australia. The beautiful flowers are bird attracting bringing nature to you. There is no pruning required as this tree maintains a good shape. The grafted ficifolia have a root stock more adaptable to different types of soil such as clay, loam and gravel making them more versatile than the non-grafted Corymbia ficifolia. Being grafted trees we need to ensure any shoots that develop from below the graft are removed as these will be root stock and may grow vigorously and overwhelm the selected Corymbia ficifolia above and you will lose the top tree and the desired flower of your selected colour.
