Eucalyptus cinerea, commonly known as the Argyle apple, mealy stringbark, silver-leaf stringybark or silver dollar tree, is a small to medium-sized tree with rough bark, persistent on the trunk and larger branches, thick, fibrous, longitudinally furrowed, reddish-brown to grey-brown.
Trees are usually mature in the juvenile leaf phase but can often produce intermediate and adult leaves which are stalked, broad-lanceolate to 11 x 2 cm, concolorous, greyish-blue and glaucous.
White flowers appear in mid spring to early summer.
