Western Australian Red-flowering Gum

I really love these trees! They’re becoming more common in Sydney as more and more people are captivated by their beautiful colours and form. They’re often grown in front gardens, and sometimes as street trees. The owner of a most magnificent specimen told me of the difficulty he had in persuading the local authorities to give him permission to plant one in the nature strip. Thanks goodness he won the battle!

Enjoy!
