Corymbia ficifolia is a bloodwood tree that loves warm coastal areas. It caught my eye properly when I was on holiday in San Francisco. I stopped in my tracks when I noticed that all the trees lining the streets were flowering in a profusion of scarlet red. I recognised them - the red flowering gums from Western Australia. They looked fabulous and so at home on the city streets of California.
