Hi Joan,

The Illawarra Flame tree can take a number of years to flower, sometimes 5-10 years after planting. It is worth noting that flowering can also occur on only one side of the tree one year and then a different side the next. There are several factors that will influence flowering. These factors include light and temperatures. If the tree getting is not receiving sufficient sunlight and is overshadowed by the conifers , this will affect flowering as will cooler temperatures as this tree thrives in warmer zones.
