A few of my the gum trees on my property, some I have planted, some already here.
Eucalyptus tetragona - a beautiful straggly mallee
I planted this little guy on the 1st of April, 3 months later he is starting to push through some new growth.
Eucalyptus tetragona or white marlock is a hybrid, I cant seem to find anywhere that will tell me its ultimate height, but I gather its quite small.
I love the silvery leaves & the gorgeous new growth, by all accounts it should have cream to yellow flowers, we shall see!
This is a well established Euc & Im not 100% sure, but going on the time of flowering I think its rodantha, which is indigenous to the Avon area, the leaves & gum nuts are just devine.

A beautiful big lemon scented gum at the front gate
Illyarrie, another spectacular West Aussie gum well established next to the lemon scented gum.
|Eucalyptus erythrocorys gumnuts|
My new baby illyarrie, their new growth is so pretty & they grow so fast!
the previous photo & next photo are of the same eucalypt, growing on the eastern fence.
there are quite a few of them, Im not sure which one they are, a guess Eucalypt torquata.
Maybe I will be able to tell when they flower.
|guessing Eucalypt torquate - coral gum|
|another on the eastern fence I am unsure of|
My new baby mottlecah - Eucalyptus macrocarpa
this was another gum given to me by my parents for my birthday
cant wait for it to flower, as they have the largest flowers of the genus & are so spectacular.
This little beauty is also a mallee & should grow to approx. 3m
Southern cross mallee was planted on the 25th May & this will grow into a pretty little tree with yellow flowers in summer.
There are heaps more which I will catalogue as well.
