This evergreen Eucryphia was discovered by Ken Gillanders as was 'Pink Cloud' which can be seen in the W.A some yards to the East of 'Ballerina'.
Difficult to tell the two apart but Ballerina is said to have crimson stamen and is perhaps the pinker flower of the two - Pink Cloud should have white stamens.
