EUCALYPTUS

Commonly known as Gum tree, Ironbark

Very attractive, fast-growing trees best used as specimens.

Genus of over 680 species of evergreen trees and shrubs found mainly in Australia but also in the Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea and Melanesia.

Leaves on young trees and sucker shoots are usually opposite, developing to alternate ones as the tree matures. Rapid regrowth after pruning produces attractive young stems for the foliage market.

Source of the well-known antiseptic oil and high-grade honey from the petalless flowers.

They release compounds that inhibit other plants from growing nearby (allelopathic effect).

The Blue Mountains of Australia take their name from the haze of vapourised volatile componds given off on warm days.
