Key to Tasmanian Dicots

Eucalyptus vernicosa (Myrtaceae) 1:219

Eucalyptus vernicosa (varnished gum) is closely to  E. johnstonii and E. subcrenulata, and has the thick, dark green leaves and yellow-green bark of this group. However, its habit is distinctive - it is usually a low growing (sometimes prostrate) alpine or subalpine shrub. It typically has only one flower per umbel, and often flowers on the juvenile foliage. It occasionally reaches small tree stature.
