E.pauciflora.jpg (21297 bytes)Eucalyptus pauciflora: is known as the Snow Gum and is one of a number of Eucalypts with dramatic, smooth white bark. Snow Gum is an apt name because the species is common in the Snowy Mountains in southern New South Wales and northern Victoria. Some of the most dramatic Eucalypt photographs are of Eucalyptus pauciflora in winter in the snow country. Snow Gums are also found right along the Tablelands in Victoria, New South Wales plus eastern Tasmania. The foliage, of Eucalyptus pauciflora, separates the species from other white-barked Eucalypts. Most Eucalypt leaves have a prominent mid-vein with the minor veins at an acute angle to the major vein. In the Snow Gum the minor veins are almost parallel to the mid-vein. The leaves are also large and leathery.
Eucalyptus pauciflora will develop into a medium, spreading tree. Large gum nuts are another distinctive feature. The Snow Gum could be cultivated as an attractive specimen tree or as a component of windbreaks and shelterbelts.
Eucalyptus pauciflora propagates readily from seed.
