Corymbia ficifolia ‘Fairy Floss’ – Flowering Gum

This delightful flowering gum has masses of pale pink blossoms in summer time. A small tree to 6 metres tall and 4 metres wide, with a dense canopy, it is a good one for smaller gardens, and as an eye catching street tree. Likes full sun to part shade, and most soil types. Best in temperate climates with lower humidity. A superb plant for bird attracting.
