Eucalyptus leucoxylon subsp. megalocarpa 'Rosea'

Botanical Information:

Family: Myrtaceae
Genus: Eucalyptus
Species: leucoxylon
Subspecies: megalocarpa

Meaning of name:
Eucalyptus is from Greek: eu, well + calyptos, covered. A reference to the well-covered cap covering the developing flowers
leucoxylon is from Greek: leucos, white + xylon, wood. A reference to the trunk colour
megalocarpa is from Greek: megalos, large + carpos. A reference to the fruit

Common names for Eucalyptus leucoxylon are Yellow Gum, (South Australian) Blue Gum and White Ironbark. There are four subspecies, all highly variable:
  • E. leucoxylon subsp. leucoxylon is the typical form
  • E. leucoxylon subsp. pruinosa has greyish juvenile leaves and fruits
  • E. leucoxylon subsp. petiolaris (no. 229 in our collection) has bell shaped ribbed fruits and juvenile leaves with long stalks
  • E. leucoxylon subsp. megalocarpa is smaller and bears large fruit
Eucalyptus leucoxylon subsp. megalocarpa is widely available under the hoticultural name ‘Rosea’.

As a species, E. leucoxylon is a medium sized tree that grows between 10m to 30m (33 to 98 feet) high. Rough bark is found on the lower 1m to 2m (3 to 6.5 feet) of the trunk, and above that the trunk and branches become smooth barked with a white, yellow, or bluish-grey surface. ‘Rosea’ however only grows to 7m (23 feet).

E. leucoxylon produces white, cream, pink, or red flowers depending on type, but ‘Rosea’ is highly regarded for its prolific and spectacular pink-red flowers that appear in autumn and winter.

This print features in the Eucalyptus leucoxylon subspecies diptych collection and the Eucalyptus ‘Rosea’ Cultivars diptych collection.
