Hi tippben

Just read and Metrosideros excelsa flowers November to January. I do believe Greengage got it right and it is Embothrium coccineum . If someone happens to drive from New Ross (Co Wexford) to Wexford town there is a few houses with that tree and it flowers for last 2/3 weeks. It looks really beautiful..Have not seen that before and want it in my garden...Thank you anyway

Just discovered that there is EMBOTHRIUM coccineum and EMBOTHRIUM lanceolatum. They both look very similar, can't figure it out whatthe difference is
