Red Box (E. pol.) is an early to mid spring flowering species usually Sept to Oct and may be worth watching then while Blakely's Red Gum (E. blakelyi) flowers late spring to early summer Nov - Dec and Yellow Box (E. mell.) is a summer flowerer Dec - Jan generally. However I have seen two large Yellow Box trees flower in July on the north side of Gossan Hill near Bruce years ago. I don't think anyone knows what triggers such odd flowering but it would certainly help passage migrants e g Swifties and stragglers and Sugar Gliders.
