Meaning of name:
Corymbia is from Latin: corymbus, cluster. A reference to the floral cluster
ficifolia is from Latin: ficus, fig tree + folium, leaf. A reference to the fig-shaped leaf, or more specifically, with leaves like that of genus Ficus
Corymbia ficifolia was originally known as Eucalyptus ficifolia, but in 1995 about 80 eucalypts were transferred to the newly created genus Corymbia.
C. ficifolia is found in a small region of south coastal Western Australia (only tens of kilometres) but is not considered endangered in the wild. It is one of the most widely cultivated eucalypts in Australia and overseas and is a popular street tree because of its hardiness, moderately fast growth and unlikliness to grow tall enough to require pruning. It can grow to a height of 15m (49 ft) but is typically smaller, from 3m to 10m (10 to 33 ft).
Flowers are usually orange to red, but can be almost white/pale cream, pink or deep crimson. The flowering habit is rather unusual compared to other gums, as the tree grows mostly in spring, but the flower heads blossom in late summer. This means the flowers are outside the bulk of the foliage and thus very visible, creating a visually stunning picture. If that weren't enough, the species has the habit of flowering heavily only every second year, and often some parts will flower one year while the other parts flower the next. This does vary widely amongst Corymbia, and individual trees have their own particular habits.
