SpecificationsThis lovely native tree is ideal for many situations. Bearing masses of cascading large deep red bell shaped flowers in late spring and early summer, on a broad-domed and very large trunked tree, it makes an ideal specimen or feature tree. Being grafted you are assured the flower colour is true. The canopy is quite dense making this an excellent shade tree that is well suited to parks, golf courses, public gardens, streetscapes, as well as your smaller garden. The new foliage is bright red which adds another interesting aspect to this tree. 'Jerilderie Red' prefers a sunny location with well draining soil. Use a low phosphorus fertilizer when required. 'Jerilderie Red' is also drought and frost tolerant once established and mulching is beneficial to retain moisture and help control weeds. The glossy foliage is fire retardant and this is another good reason for adding this tree to any situation.
