On my way to the post office the other day, I spotted this eucalyptus with its spectacular cluster of red flowers and gumnuts. The tree has a smooth bark with broad lanceolate leaves on reddish-brown twigs. It looks majestic this time of the year. I was surprised that I didn’t notice this tree before.
Eucalyptus leucoxylon is a medium size tree that flowers profusely in winter (now, I know why). Depending on the different species and varietal, there are some trees that bear white or pink flowers. I picked a few branches home to surface print on wool fabric. The result was amazing and I am happy to share!
