|Wallangarra white gum|
|E. scoparia, field distribution|
Eucalyptus scoparia, the Wallangarra white gum, is a small to medium-sized tree with smooth, white with light grey patched bark with a powdery coating. The leaves are stalked, narrow-lanceolate to 15 x 1 cm, concolorous, glossy, green with numerous oil glands. White flowers appear in late spring to early summer.
Distribution is restricted to moderately high altitudes in the Wallangarra region of southern Queensland and New South Wales. Its common name is derived from the town Wallangarra, Queensland. A very small group exists on Mount Ferguson west of Amiens. Trees are found in clefts of massive granite outcrops on mountain tops.
The tree is widely planted as an ornamental in south-eastern Australia for its attractive bark and fine glossy green foliage.
