The photographs, taken during last week in my home garden, are attached.
Xanthostemon youngii is commonly known as crimson penda or red penda, is a species of trees found only (endemic) in North Queensland, of the family Myrtaceae. It has showy red blooms, but has been difficult to keep alive in cultivation. However, I could grow successfully in Mysore environment. I got a young plant of about 2 feet size in a local nursery 2 years back.
Please confirm the ID.
Seems correct ID.
Thanks, … Efi page available at
