This is one of the most stunning rainforest trees with a spectacular flowering in spring. Adapting well to cool climates, it will flower most prolifically if grown in full sun in deep rich soil with extra water given in periods of hot dry weather.

Customer Comments on Tree Waratah
My theory for good blossoming, based on the two cutting grown specimens I have (6 metres ) is that they need winter sun to flower well. One might expect summer sun, but both of mine held off until winter shade was removed. Bingo. very satisfying to grow. | Lloyd Lacey - Brisbane, QLD 28-Dec-2014
Tree waratahs are the pride of my garden. They should be grown in full sun with good mulch for weed suppression. Do not use weed killer around them. They should start flowering at around 7 years old. | Riku Koskela - Ashmore, QLD 22-Oct-2019
