The Kurrajongs are trees occurring from the dry inland to the rainforests. They are all deciduous for a short period in spring when many bell shaped flowers replace the leaves in a colourful mantle that covers the tree.
They are particularly conspicuous in the rainforest and when used as street trees or specimen in gardens.
A carpet of spent flowers covers the ground below for long periods.
