Manna Gum

Eucalyptus viminalis ssp. viminalis

A straight tall growing gum between 25 - 50metres tall with rough bark on the lower part of the trunk and at the base of larger branches. Bark peels off in ribbons during summer to reveal a smooth white trunk. The leaves are narrow and weeping in habit whilst the small flowers are cream coloured and usually form in a cluster of three. This tree prefers moist, well-drained alluvial soils near watercourses but also occurs on drier sites at higher levels and will tolerate most soils in full sun.
