The Midas Touch

The exquisite gold glowing bark of a Eucalypt on our nature walk today. Can anybody help us identify it?


Eucalypts, in particular, have a variety of interesting barks, but the most unusual, to me, are the species with these fascinating polished barks of copper and bronze and gold. Eucalyptus salubris, E.sargentii, E.diptera, E.campaspe and E.eremophila all have beautiful bark of varying metallic shades, but none are native to our area. It's a bit of a mystery, this one!

Can you add a close up of the leaves and flowers/seeds/flowercaps?

The Jemimah Golden Hair Gum???
It is lovely and I haven't seen anything quite like it. Apart from grey we get mostly white and silver here. Beautiful aren't they!

Nice to see it, but I don't have anything to help!

It is lovely...I just asked Dave and he is not sure, he said he grew this gum at his grandparents property on Phillip Island years ago.

I love eucalyptus! We don't have any around here, but when Himself and I visited Hawaii, I never tired of catching its scent....

I'd love you to leave me a message. Tell me what you like - and what you don't. Just remember that this is what we do in our family - it doesn't have to be what you do in yours...
