Hi Jenny. Perhaps your tree was the Red Flowering Gum. Have a look here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corymbia_ficifolia
I’m looking to replace a big red flowering big gum nut gum tree. Growing at kelvin view. Not native.
But do t know it’s name. Can you help please.
Do have photos of flowers.
Are there any local Eucalypt experts I can ask about the Hill Redgum (see note in Closterman’s field guide), and also a strange Eucalypt observed south of Euroa – thanks
