Queensland Native Seeds

Eucalyptus propinqua

Scientific NameEucalyptus propinqua
Common Name(s)Small-Fruited Grey Gum


"Tree to 40 m tall. Forming a lignotuber." (Euclid, 4th Ed.)


As for other Grey Gums overlapping the distribution of E. propinqua, the bark of the trunk is attractively coloured, mottled with hues of orange, pink and cream. The demand for seed of this species is mostly generated from coastal revegetation works. Nurseries produce seedling transplants in such cases.
