Eucalyptus woodwardii

A couple of weeks ago I posted some photos of Eucalytus seen on the road to Boort, that I was unable to identify. Mrs Tappy of Eddington has kindly identified this tree. It is Eucalyptus woodwardii. She thinks that these trees were planted in the 1950's. Their common name is the Lemon Flwered Mallee. In its natural habitat, it is found in a few, restricted sites east of Karonie in Western Australia. It is a small to medium tree with a weeping habit, which is prized for honey production and prefers low summer rainfall
