Red Ironbark (Eucalyptus sideroxylon 'Rosea')

Botanical Information:

Family: Myrtaceae
Genus: Eucalyptus
Species: sideroxylon

Meaning of name:
Eucalyptus is from Greek: eu, well + calyptos, covered. A reference to the well-covered cap covering the developing flowers
sideroxylon is from Greek: sideros, iron + xylon, wood. A reference to the very hard wood

Eucalyptus sideroxylon can grow to 20m (66 ft) tall. White, pale yellow, pink, or red flowers appear from early autumn until mid spring —  the illustration here is of the ‘Rosea’ or red-flowering ironbark.

The tree is found in the open forests of the western slopes and plains of New South Wales, and extends north into south-eastern Queensland and south into north-central Victoria. The bark is a striking deep brown to black in colour with dark red furrows and the foliage is a dull grey-green.

The timber is a very hard wood with a high resistance to rotting, making it useful for fencing posts and piers. It was also used for railway sleepers but these are gradually being replaced by concrete sleepers. The wood is fine-grained and difficult to work, but polishes to a beautiful high sheen and has been used for furniture and benchtops.

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