Stenocarpus sinuatus – Firewheel Tree
An iconic beauty - the Stenocarpus sinuatus or Firewheel tree is a spectacular specimen of the Australian Rainforest and deserves a place as a feature tree if you have room to accomodate it.
It is a medium to large tree, reaching 10 - 30 metres tall depending on position.
Lush and evergreen with maroon tipped leaves and incredible ornamental red circular flowers in summer, it is a stunner.
Although it originates in subtropical to tropical climates, it will also grow in temperate areas.
Will do best in rich loamy soil, but will grow in most soil types. Grow in sun to part shade and protect from wind and frost while young.
Spectacular tree for colour, foliage, shade, birds and wildlife.
Plants available : Strong lush young trees approx 30cm tall
