Trees from the East Kimberley can be found in West Kimberley gardens, pictured below. Here is a selection for a friend interested in some shady trees for the East Kimberley.
Terminalia canescens, the Wingnut Tree
Red flowering Swamp Bloodwood, Corymbia ptychocarpa
Corymbia ptychocarpa in all it’s red glory at northwestplants.net
Below is the Halls Creek Ghost Gum, featuring large grey leaves and white flowers.
Eucalyptus pantoleuca, Halls Creek Ghost Gum
The next two are of Eucalyptus brevifolia, the Snappy Gum found on hillsides and rocky outcrops. Some more include some stunners like the Freshwater Mangrove found on various rivers and wetlands, Barringtonia acutangula:
Something a bit shorter and wider, the Black Tea Tree, spreading to several metres wide on maturity,
One for the birds and animals, Ficus racemosa,
Cluster Fig, Ficus racemosa
and another large fig, Ficus virens, a Banyan Fig.
Nectar laden flowers of Bauhinia cunninghamii
My choices have to include a favorite, widespread Kimberley tree, Bauhinia cunninghamii, Some fine architectural Pandanus Palms could be a feature:
Pandanus spiralis ssp
This hardy tree is a Woolly-butt, found on the tops of sanddunes and on rocky pindan soils,
Eucalyptus miniata, Woolly-butt Tree
I could keep going, our nurseries have many other species that would do, including Planchonia careya, Brachychiton diversifolia, the Boab, Adansonia gregorii and Mimusops elengi.
