ILLYARRIE
Illyarrie also know as the Red Cap Gum (Eucalyptus erythrocorys) One of the most decorative Eucalypts. The flower buds each have a brilliant red square cap with a raised cross on top. The caps burst open in the Autumn to reveal a spray of rich yellow flowers and stamens 5cm (2") across. The red buds and yellow stamens are present on the tree at the same time in large numbers, giving a  magnificent display against the green foliage and smooth white bark of the trunk. Approx. 10 - 15 seeds.
