Also known common as the Golden Bouquet Tree or Yellow Pagoda Flower Tree and curiously as the Wallaby Wireless Tree. This tree has been called the Wallaby Wireless Tree because wallabies are allegedly fond of the fallen flowers and the ‘news’ of the fallen fare spreads quickly throughout the wallaby population in a given area.
The Golden Bouquet Tree is a marvel to behold in it’s full blossoming glory and has earned a rightful place in the parks and waysides of Cairns. In flower the Golden Bouquet Tree is unmistakable and cannot be missed, with the showy inflorescences set like blazing yellow crowns amongst the verdant canopy. When not in flower, this tree can also readily be recognized by the stout leaf bearing twigs, and the whorled arrangement of the robust leaves. The leaves are also obovate and clearly whitish-green beneath, with very bold venation.
This tree was born to stand out!
