@ethelperry Thanks Ethel. It's part of a wind-break on one of Rob's paddocks.

@dide They are lovely small trees, but shallow-rooted and tricky to grow in most places.

@onewing Thanks Babs, lovely tree, pity the cockies/corellas have ripped off the top of it.

@merrelyn Thank you.

@olivetreeann You're right, they do. I hadn't thought of that.

@gilbertwood Many thanks, much appreciated.

@taffy They're native to a small area in Western Australia and can be quite tricky to grow. Well worth the effort though, as well as the flowers the bark and gumnuts are a sight to marvel at.

I did not know Eucalyptus has flowers.
August 31st, 2018  
@yaorenliu Oh yes, they all flower, some more interesting flowers than others.
August 31st, 2018  
Fabulous - we can't get them to grow up here - not the right soil! sigh...

@robz I had a couple in my previous house, but no success here Rob. Soil OK but the wind seemed to swirl in a way they didn't like. At $55 a pop I gave the idea away after two failures.

I love these trees, not just the flowers. I like the character of the trunks, the bark, the foliage, their gestures. A bit of the soul of Australia - at least for me.

@jerome I completely agree with you, in many ways the bark and gumnuts are more spectacular than the wonderful flowers.

@golftragic Everything is beautiful about this great tree.
I had one in my garden. Of course as a container plant, not to compare with the powerful trees in Australia. He had to spend the winter in the cellar. He even flowered once - not as nice as in your photo, but at least. At some point he died.
