Autumn - Perth Hills - Wildflowers of Western Australia Eucalypt

MOTTLECAH Eucalyptus macrocarpa This prehistoric looking plant is a native of Western Australia. Largest flower in the Eucalypt family. Also called Rose of the West.

EUCALYPTUS lehmanii. Native to the south coast of Western Australia this decorative ornamental Mallee is typically a dense, rounded mallee or small tree with branches all the way down to almost ground level. Smooth bark of light pink, grey-brown and red; often having an accumulation of older bark at the base of the trunk. The large clusters of green flowers are preceded by fused clusters of red finger-like buds. Buds, fruit and flowers are excellent for floral and dried arrangements.

I know of no gum buds with caps anywhere near as long as these. Thanks to who informed me that this is Eucalyptus lehmannii, native to Western Australia - see comment below. It's odd how the great majority of the spectacular Eucalypts are native to WA.
