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 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, as it dislikes excess humidity.
