Corymbia eximia nana

Yellow Bloodwood


Technical information

Height: 12 metres

Habit & Growth rate: Corymbia eximia is known to succeed on poor, gravelly or sandy soils and over the last few years in Melbourne continued healthy growth during long periods of drought.

Mt William Advanced Tree Nursery for the last few years has been growing Corymbia eximia ‘nana’ which in our climate seems to be growing to only about 8 metres which makes its suitable for areas where their maybe height or space restrictions.

Foliage: Corymbia eximia (Yellow bloodwood) features massive heads of golden yellow flowers displayed above the foliage for a very short time in spring. This Corymbia from the more temperate areas of Australia (Central NSW) can be affected the cold and frost. When the warm weather returns the discolouration in the foliage soon disappears.

At Mt William we have been growing it very successfully and we suffer many frosts over winter. We do spray with Seasol that toughens plant cells to resist frost damage.
