Flowering gum blossom is a relative newcomer to floristry as a seasonal focal flower. Stunning new selections, mainly hybrids in the ‘Summer Beauty’ group, have driven popularity. These produce dense terminal masses of very large blossoms in many colours, from cream through pink to red, orange and deep crimson. Prominent yellow or gold stamens provide an attractive contrast.
