Murray red gum Overview
This species will grow up to 45m tall with a generous spread and trunk to 3.5m in diameter. They are grown for their impressive appearance. It is great for shade and shelter and also a tree able to withstand long dry periods, cold, winds and waterlogged soil. The leaves of the eucalyptus are toxic; there are few plants that will grow effectively under or near them-apart from the honeysuckle. The small summer yellow flowers are insignificant and are followed by pea-sized seed capsules in long clusters. The bark is tanned and mottled.
