This beautiful ornamental tree can grow up to 6-8metres tall with a gentle weeping, pendulous growth habit. Large pink to red blossoms contrast with yellow stamens, putting on a flower show from Winter to Spring – which honeyeaters also love. Narrow, leathery leaves and bark that’s initially smooth red-brown shed in curls and age to expose new bark greenish or yellow-brown bark add to their decorative appeal. Try this variety in temperate areas of Australia with lower rainfall and humidity; it will thrive in most soil types as long as they are well-drained. Its open growth habit also allows for underplanting.
