The Blue Gum is Tasmania’s floral emblem and its nectar is a major food source for the endangered Swift parrot. Its long, sickle-shaped leaves exude a strong scent of eucalyptus and the large cream flowers produce copious nectar.
The tree, which can grow to 45 metres, was first described and collected in 1792 by the French naturalist, JJH Labillardiere, a member of the Bruni D’Entrecasteaux expedition.
The specimen depicted in this artwork grows in Woodbridge, a small village in southern Tasmania.
