Combretum sp

Is this also Combretum constrictum? Although the leaves look a bit different..

Looks like Xanthostemon youngii (Crimson Penda) – a Myrtaceae member

I think … is correct, It is Xanthostemon youngii

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
