The name Waratah comes from the Eora Aborginal people, the original inhabitants of the Sydney area.
It means 'red flowering tree'.
Indigenous Australian legends feature the Waratah strongly & Indigenous people used the flower in a number of ways, including as a medicinal tonic for children & by infusing water with the flavour of the blooms to create a sweet drink.
