Starburst - Western Australian Flowering Gum by 

Eucalyptus ficifolia (Western Australian Flowering Gum) (126 Views)

As the flowers continue to open on the Western Australian Flowering Gums (Eucalyptus ficifolia) The correct name for this species is now Corymbia ficifolia. These are hardy trees to survive here with the hot dry summers, winter frostd and limestone soils on most parts of the town.

This tree is 6-15 metres tall by 5-20 metres wide, flowering here from December to March. It is a tree like a mallee in that it has a lignotuber and if the trunk was cut off it would sprout multiple trunks from the lignotuber. However these trees have a nice single trunk with a dense canopy and of course the spectacular flowers.
