The Red Gum (Eucalyptus erythrocorys) is a small tree with an open spreading canopy. The bark is smooth with a creamy colour but can have a few rough brown coloured patches in places where the bark has not shed. In Autumn, the tree produces yellow and fluffy flowers, emerging from green flower buds with a vivid red, warty cap.
Suitable for general garden planting, flowers and buds can be cut as indoor decorations.
