Red flowering gums

3 May

stunning is the simple word for any red flowering gum.  They generally don’t grow very well in Sydney, but there are some cultivars and new varieties of Corymbia ficifolia that are challenging the Sydney conditions.  There are quite a few in the gardens around Drawn Outdoors HQ, and I couldn’t help but take a photo on our wander up to the shops.

I’m feeling a wee bit like Little Ragged Blossom now.
