This medium-sized to large multi-trunked tree, from the rainforests of northern New South Wales to north Queensland, is renowned for its eye-catching flowering from February to March. The tree’s common name best describes the circular pattern of red flowers that resemble the spokes of a wheel.
In their natural environment, the Wheel of Fire can reach a substantial height. However, without the competition of other trees, a Wheel of Fire will generally grow to about 10 to 15m. The bark is dark, greyish-brown and has an irregular surface and the branching is irregular with dense foliage.
