Queensland Native Seeds

Eucalyptus blakelyi

Scientific NameEucalyptus blakelyi
Common Name(s)Blakely's Redgum


"Tree to 25m tall." (Euclid, 4th Ed.)


Eucalyptus blakelyi shares many similarities with Eucalytpus tereticornis. It is smaller in stature however which makes for very efficient seed collections. Care should be taken in northern New South Wales and in Queensland not to confuse these two, or to confuse Eucalyptus blakelyi with Eucalyptus amplifolia or Eucalyptus chloroclada. A close study of authoritative references should be made if collecting seed where these plant distributions overlap.

Historical Notes


Occurrences of Eucalyptus blakelyi in Victoria are most abundant on the northern side of the Great Dividing Range. From that point it is seen frequently north to Warwick in Queensland with a very small number of occurrences between Warwick and Chinchilla at the northern end of its range.
