Eucalyptus radiata

Narrow Leaved Peppermint Gum

This native Australian tree forms a dense canopy with dark green leaves which have a peppermint scent when crushed. The bark is grey or grey-brown and is quite fibrous and finely fissured. It is a beautiful tree with small creamy white flowers borne from October to January. This form of eucalypt is one of the varieties used in essential oil production and is also known as a source of food for the Koala.
