Stenocarpus sinuatus. FIREWHEEL TREE. New South Wales, Queensland
A beautiful tree, not too big, with upright habit and long
glossy leaves with sinuous margins or deeply lobed. The remarkable flower clusters
are made up of individual flowers resembling those of other Proteaceae, such as
Grevilleas, but are arranged in more or less flat wheels about 2 inches in diameter.
The only specimen known on campus is at 849 Pine Hill Road.
