Eucalyptus gunnii (Myrtaceae) 1:215

Eucalyptus gunnii is a spreading tree found in frosty areas, especially on the Central Plateau. It is one of the gum group of species, with 3 flowers per umbel and smelling of eucalyptus oil when crushed. It has glaucous juvenile foliage, and the adult foliage may be green or slightly glaucous. It grades into  E. archeri along the northern margin of the Central Plateau. Populations on the Central Plateau have been severely affected by dieback.
