Eucalyptus caesia "Silver Princess"
Spring is round the corner. Ornamental weeping gum with white trunk and large red flowers that are produced in spring. Flowers from a mature "Silver Princess".
I love Gum Blossoms. Whenever I see them they bring back the childhood memories of my favorite book "Snugglepot & Cuddlepie" by May Gibbs which I still have sitting in my bookshelf. The illustrations were so amazing and had a real Australian feel to them. My mother also had a May Gibbs book when she was a child, she in turn handed it on to me, it also sits in my bookshelf (although a little worse for wear)
