Answer: Hi Paul,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

It looks to me like it is a Golden Penda Tree or Xanthostemon Chrysanthus.

This is a native Australian rainforest tree and very much seen in the northern parts of Australia. Lovely flowers appear late summer through to early winter.

They don’t require much feeding, just a light dose of some Dynamic Lifter Soil Improver and Plant Fertiliser in Spring and Autumn will give it a light boost.

Kind regards
Yates Horticulturalist
