The Coral Gum (EUCALYPTUS torquata) is native to Goldfields in Western Australia. A challenging plant to care for, but it rewards with a conspicuous show of prolific pink flowers between spring and summer. These coral-pink or creamy flowers have an abundant nectar supply, making it a good source of food for local birds and native wildlife.

 

Works well as a feature tree in water-wise gardens and native plantings.
