Corymbia calophylla

Marri, Port Gregory Gum


Description: This can be a large tree to 150' - often only about 60' in cultivation.  This species provides a dense foliage canopy.  The bark is rough, brown and flaky.  Leaves are large, thick with reddish brown new growth.  This tree is outstanding when in flower - colors are either white or pink.  This species is closely related to Corymbia ficifolia, but is somewhat larger in size.  Fruits are large, woody and urn-shaped with a constricted neck.  This is an extensively cultivated tree and does best with adequate moisture and acid soils.
