Angophora costata - Rusty Gum
A large, spreading tree which occurs naturally on the sandy soils and stony ridges of southern Queensland forests.
The trunk is often gnarled and crooked with a pink and grey, rusty-stained bark. In nature the butts of fallen limbs form callused bumps on the trunk and add to the gnarled appearance. The old bark is shed in spring in large flakes with the new salmon-pink bark turning to pale grey before the next shedding.
The flowers are white and very showy, appearing between December and February. The tree has a handsome, rugged ornamental appearance.
