rodwayi (sometimes misleadingly called Swamp Peppermint) is a smallish eucalypt of waterlogged areas, except in
the south-west. It has seven fruit
per umbel. It is closely related to E. ovata, E.
brookeriana and E. barberi, but can be easily
distinguished from those species by having fibrous bark throughout
Its habit is similar to that of
E. amygdalina, but it grows in poorly drained areas
rather than the dry rocky places occupied by E. amygdalina.
