Corymbia hybrid ‘Summer Beauty’ Flowering Gum

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.

This is a grafted gum, which means it can be grown in more humid areas as well as the southern states.

Note– this plant produces large gumnuts which can be a slipping and tripping hazard when they drop
