BLOODWOOD - RED
Botanical Name: Corymbia gummifera
A fast growing tree suitable for use as a street tree and park planting. Tolerates a wide variety of soils provided adequate moisture is available in the establishment period. Flowers are quite ornamental and showy since they are produced on the outside of the canopy. Copious nectar production attracts a wide range of both invertebrate and vertebrate fauna. Seeds are eaten by cockatoos. Glider possums actively scar this tree and trunk and branches to access the sap flow for food. Older trees develop hollow bearing branches which provide breeding and roosting opportunities for a diverse range of species.
