A large shrub to small tree, it has beautiful trusses of creamy white gum blossoms in the warmer months of the year. With large glossy dark green leaves with a light green reverse with reddish new foliage, it is a handsome plant even when not in flower. In flower, it will be a magnet for parrots and other nectar lovers. Prefers a well drained soil in a sunny position. Needs protection from frost for a few years while establishing, but can take frost as it matures. Summer Snow is a hybrid of Corymbia ficifolia and Corymbia ptychocarpa, which makes it more hardy in humid areas.
Note- this plant produces large gumnuts which can be a slipping and tripping hazard when they drop
