First saw eucryphia in Lismore Castle gardens, Co. Waterford; in full flower at the time, they were Eucryphia intermedia Rostrevor and must have been 40' tall and covered in bees; noise was spectacular.
Interesting Eric. So a Chilean cross, and not the Tasmanian one, but still....presumably Gondwanian in origin.

No idea what mine are bringing in VERY busy, a few are obviously on the Himalayan balsalm, but most are arriving with medium-filled pollen baskets of dull yellow pollen. At some times of day it looks like every bee!
Anyone any ideas?
