Corymbia ficifolia ‘Wildfire’ Flowering Gum

A gorgeous small tree with large glossy dark green leaves with a light green reverse with reddish new foliage during the warmer months of the year. Outstanding terminal display of large red flowers which are a magnet to nectar loving birds. Prefers a well drained soil in a sunny position.

These trees are now grafted, so they will grow in the southern states as well as more humid areas.
