This fast-growing native gum is drought tolerant and seems to grow in almost any soil from clay to sand, rocky to creekside, wet and even salty soils. 

Cream-white-yellow flowers from a very young age; lime green gumnuts like tiny bells; and the bark is striking, changing from dark grey at the trunk to smooth white on upper branches.
