Ivory Curl time

The beautiful Ivory Curl (Buckinghamia celsissima) is a native Australian rainforest tree that is also popular in our gardens and parks. I always post a pic. of this beautiful tree when it begins to flower and I saw this one at South West Rocks today. The top shot is the tree just coming into full bloom; the bottom shot is a close-up of one of the flowers. They are a stunning sight when flowering en masse. Our local town has them planted in the mall so will try to get a good shot of them when they are all in bloom.
What a gorgeous looking blossom. I've not seen this before

This is a gorgeous tree. I'm sure it must be fabulous to see it in full bloom.

@swilde Thanks, Sue. Yes, it wouldn't survive in your climate; it's happiest in tropics to sub-tropics.

I love Buckinghamias, they grow beautifully around Brisbane. I have one in a pot waiting to be planted out, I'm not sure if it will grow as nicely here though. Lovely shot of the tree as well as the close up.

Wow, what a magnificent tree - I have never seen one before. Thanks for sharing these beautiful images of it!

Excellent curly detail in these exotic flowers. What a sight these would be in full bloom. Nicely presented Robin.

Wow! That is an interesting tree. Really like the details in these photos.

Wow, so interesting! I think I would walk around mesmerized for days when things started blooming in your area.

What a stunning tree Robin, when I saw the flower I thought it was a grevillea but on reading your narative I realise it's not. I've never seen this tree, I guess it must be more suited to the tropical Queensland climate than WA!

Love the collage of this beautiful tree and one of the flowers, must be a magnificent sight!

@judithdeacon Thanks, Judith. Yes, as I'm sure you're aware, WA has a different flora range from the eastern states because of that big desert in the middle of the continent. These trees are only along the east coast.
