    I love the way the gum flowers open, like opening a casket to find the treasures. Great shot

    Great shot…how tall does it grow…I want one!!!!

  • Thanks Picketty! The neighbours grafted gum photographed, was planted last year and is still quite small (1m). The information on the growers tag states that the tree will get 3m x 3m due to being grafted, although other information I’ve read varies so it may get taller!
