Red Flowering Gum 10 seeds ■●
If you have a micro climate that supports only a couple of degrees of frost you have to try Eucalyptus ficifolia! All of the hardy eucalyptus have white flowers, but overseas there are some lovely red flowering varieties, this being one of the hardiest. The flower bunches are about 6" across, and appear all over the tree in terminal racemes. My own tree shown in the picture is grown in a cold greenhouse but I would just love to be able to plant it outside. An excellent subject for the cold conservatory.
