The Flooded Gum (Eucalyptus rudis) is grown in the Southwest of WA, from Geraldton to Albany, growing in most soil types in wet areas such as swamps, lake edges and floodways. Its leaves are shaped like an elongated egg when young and change to a linear shape when mature. The white flower of the gum blooms between summer and autumn with an abundant nectar supply, making it a good source of food for local birds, bees and native wildlife.
These fast-growing trees are ideal as feature trees or as shelter for livestock.
