These compact small eucalypts make a great roadside
display along the south coast of WA. They occur in areas of sand, gravelly laterite, sandy clay on coastal & subcoastal sandplains and hills. The tree grows as a mallee abot 3-4m tall and forms dense thickets. The leaves are bright
green, large and oval in shape. The flowers are large and bright
, and as they are produced towards the ends of branches they are highly visible.
Flowering start in August and ends in November.
