Corymbia ‘Summer Beauty’ is the gum tree that you can have in your backyard when you can’t have a gum tree.
These hybrid cultivars are a cross between the Corymbia ptycocarpa and Corymbia ficifolia and grow to be a comfortable 5m tall. “Summer Beauty” is a lovely strawberry pink and ‘Summer Red” is cerise. Both produce spectacular floral displays in the spring time that are heavily laden with nectar and attract a wide range of nectar loving birds and bees, both European and native. After the flowers have finished they produce the typical large gumnuts, which adorn the tree for months. Plant in a sunny position.
