Eucalyptus macrocarpa, Eucalyptus lehmannii, Western Australia
First Page Number
Last Page Number
This species, a shrub between six and 15 feet in height, is the largest-flowered of all the species of Eucalyptus.
The name is intended to indicate this fact, but unfortunately the Greek work makros means "long" and actually the fruit "karpos" is remarkably short in comparison to its diameter, being in fact the broadest fruit within the genus.
