Christmas Colour.


This is one of the grafted Eucalypts that we have planted in our garden. It gives a nice splash of seasonal colour with the red and green. This is the first good flush of flowers we've had on this tree, last year the possums nibbled the new buds. One of the parents is E. ficifolia a red flowering Western Australian species and it's grafted on to rootstock of E. phytocarpa which has the common name " Swamp bloodwood" this is able to tolerate our more wet and humid summers. They are not cheap to buy, but certainly worth it for the beautiful colour they bring to the garden, plus they attract the native birds. For any fellow bloggers dropping by we wish you a joyful Christmas and happiness and health for the coming year. God Bless.
