The common name, “red flowering gum” is often used, but generally not to indicate Corymbia ficifolia in particular as opposed to it and other similar looking trees. The name is also something of a misnomer; all gums flower, many are red, Corymbia ficifolia is not really a “gum” but a bloodwood, and its flowers can be any shade between pale cream, through pink, to red, orange or deep crimson.

Hi, my name is Chris. I reside in Horsham, the capital of the whealt belt area in Victoria, Australia. I enjoy capturing the beauty of my beloved country and touring Australia in my Caravan. The majority of my photographs are landscape images of my travels.

I hope you enjoy my travels too and I thankyou for taking your time to look at my work!

Warm Regards

Chris (cjcphotography)
