Queensland Native Seeds

Eucalyptus grandis

Scientific NameEucalyptus grandis
Common Name(s)Rose Gum, Flooded Gum


"Tree to 55 (–75) m tall." (Euclid, 4th Ed.)


Eucalyptus grandis, as its name suggests, is a tree a very large proportions and seed collections are difficult in deep forest situations, often in cleared areas also where tree height may be more constrained by light availability. Demand for seed is currently limited because its natural distribution is extremely coastal.
