Thanks and thanks to you to Kin! I didn't even recognize this photo as mine. This is a really pretty Eucalyptus. I had no clue until a couple of years ago that there were such varied flowers in the different cultivars of the Eucalyptus. Plants never fail to amaze me. Some really frilly pink to a so huge yellow. I love how the blooms open!
