Eucalyptus torquata – Coral Gum


Dazzling displays of flowers and intricately textured flower buds and gumnuts on a small to medium sized tree define this outstanding ornamental eucalypt. It makes a wonderful street or specimen tree that will attract birds to the garden in profusion. Very little if any maintenance is required. Best in areas with a dry summer, where it performs well as a street tree.
