Very attractive small tree with nectar laden flowers attractive to Birds. Bees & Butterflies in fact any creature that likes nectar. Tolerates quite high Ph 8+. Seed (like all Eucalypts) should be harvested from mature seed pods at least one year old picked and placed in a paper bag or open container as the pod drys the seed along with "Chaff" will fall out on shaking the container.

Beautiful flowers on this smaller tree- flowers large and sometimes so many, branches weighed down towards ground. Good tree for desert areas.
