This tall native gum is found right around the south-east of Australia in a range of climates and soils, growing alongside other gums, acacias, and kurrajong

The fluffy white flowers appear in abundance, and throughout the year; and the bark is rippled brown on the trunk, smooth and white on upper branches.

One of these trees survived the Hiroshima nuclear blast, so if you were worried about its resilience, that should put your mind at rest...
