Did you know?
- The name waratah is taken from the Eora people, the original inhabitants of Sydney. It roughly translates to 'red flowering tree' and is the emblem for New South Wales
- Each waratah bloom is actually several flowers (from 10-250) resulting in a 6-15cm wide flower
- Waratahs are highly resilient to changes in habitat and can regenerate below the ground if there are any disruptions to the soil, such as from fire.
