They’re Out! Western Australian Red-Flowering Gums!

They’re out! Western Australian Red-flowering Gums!

In Sydney,this is the just the start of their glorious season…

Sadly, it’s a fairly short time…but nevertheless, absolutely glorious!

This photo was taken in a neighbour’s garden.

There’s even a few planted locally as street trees. What wonderful specimens!

With luck, I will gather more images as time goes by…

    I love these. I went through a phase and bought my folks a couple of the grafted hybrid cultivars, Summer Beauty (a pink type) and Wildfire (intense red). They live in the Blue Mountains so the straight Flowering Gum wouldn’t last long.

      They are strikingly beautiful! I hope that the ones you bought are thriving! 🙂

    Please do….I love both the red one and the pinkish one. Not sure if the pink one is also known by the same name though. Aren’t they just wonderful.
