Australian Native Orchids.

The large red flowers and lovely spreading but relatively compact habit of this delightful eucalypt are its outstanding features. It is widely planted in southern Australia as a feature tree but tends to struggle in more humid climates such as Sydney and Brisbane. It isgenerally grown from seed and thus the form of the tree and flower colour can vary quite a lot and sometimes be disappointing. However, good forms are to die for! It is virtually maintenance free apart from cleaning up any fallen leaves and flowers.
