Corymbia ficifolia (WA red flowering gum) occurs naturally in a restricted geographical range in the wetter parts of SW WA. It is a small tree sometimes growing to larger proportions and has been planted extensively not only throughout Australia but overseas mainly because of the briliant flowering summer display and large urn-shaped fruit capsules.
Corymbia ficifoliacan be frost sensistive when small so care needs to be taken in this regard. Flower colour will vary between individuals but it is almost always a shade of red but occaisionally may be paler or even white
