Eucalyptus ficifolia - Red Flowering Gum

Eucalyptus ficifolia is a common street tree in coastal communities. For the most part the Red Flowering Gum is pretty well behaved as a street tree. Eucalyptus ficifolia is a favorite tree for attracting hummingbirds to your garden. During our Christmas Bird Count these trees can be depended upon to have a few choice warblers and a wealth of hummingbird activity.
