This spectacular evergreen eucalypt is commonly found around Perth with its attractive yellow, fluffy flower clusters that explode from green buds with a showy red cap in late summer and early autumn. It has very decorative bark that is white and smooth. An ideal specimen for general garden planting. Grows best in an open sunny position in well drained soils, as well as in limestone and alkaline soils. Drought tolerant once established, and for best results prune after flowering when young to promote bushy growth.
