Corymbia ficifolia

  • Acacia holosericea - Candelabra Wattle / Silky Wattle / Silver Leaved Wattle / Soapbush Wattle 

    A spreading shrub to 4m with yellow rod shaped flowers in Winter followed by masses of twisted seed pods which persist and feature even after the seed has dropped.  This wattle has a beautiful grey-green foliage and appearing to have a velvety texture from the white appressed hairs on each leaf.  This species occurs and is distributed in Queensland, Northern Territory and northern Western Australia.  It is a particularly usefule specimen, not only for its appearance but for rehabilitation projects as it is quick growing.

    Corymbia ficifolia syn Eucalyptus ficifolia - Red Flowering Gum

    A tree which may reach 10m but very often smaller with dark glossy green leaves and rough persistant brown to grey-brown bark.  This species is widely grown for its spectacular red flowers (although there can be some variation in colour, sometimes bright red to orange-pink) which are highly ornamental and also important to bees and birds.

    Lomandra longifolia - Spiny-Head Mat Rush / Basketgrass

    An Australian native perennial rhizomatous herb with glossy green strappy leaves and these are usually longer than the flower stalk - which is usually half the length. Flowers are scented, cream coloured and occur in Spring and Summer.  This is a low maintenance plant - very tolerant to drought, pest and diseases and one of the best choices for riverbank stabilisation.
