A beautiful 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 pink flowers, followed by decorative large gum nuts. Prefers a well drained soil in a sunny position. Honey eating birds love the nectar of the Corymbias.
