Eucalyptus platypus

Platypus Gum, round-leaved moort

This is a mallee Eucalyptus originating in Western Australia. The multi-stemmed nature of this variety together with its dense canopy of rounded leaves gives this tree a large shrubby look. Bark is smooth and light brown in colour, turning to grey with age. Creamy yellow to greenish yellow coloured flowers appear from spring through to autumn and so this variety is popular among bee keepers.
