Eucalyptus preissiana, Bell-fruit Mallee

Eucalyptus preissiana, Bell fruit Mallee
One of the highlights of a recent visit to the Illawarra Grevillea Park at Bulli In New South Wales was the sight of this golden yellow flowered Mallee. It is from WA and grows to about 3 metres. It is a rather spindly tree and would need to be planted as a group of about 6 to have any impact. A raised garden bed would probably suit it as well. Under-planting it with the blue form of Kangaroo Grass Themeda 'Mingo'
would make a very pleasing picture indeed.
