Although far too large for most suburban yards (up to 30m), this is a splendid choice for larger properties, parklands, and bushland areas. With creamy white flowers (in Winter-Spring) that are not as noticeable as other Corymbias, it is still very attractive to birds and its’ strong, spotted trunk is a wonderful display after old bark sheds in early Summer. The timber is strong and is commonly used for construction and for honey production. Frost tender but drought resistant, occurring mainly in New South Wales and SE Queensland.
