One eucalyptus tree—the Mountain Ash—is among the tallest in the world, towering almost 300 feet above the forest floor.
Eucalyptus belongs to the myrtle family; the same clan that includes guava, all-spice, cloves, and Melaleuca. The eucalyptus flowers are dressed in white, cream, pink, or red; and their nectar produces a high-quality honey. This nectar is a popular food for many native Australian birds, bats, and possums.
The cone-shaped, woody fruits, known as gum nuts, are commonly used in floral decorations, and the leaves often find a welcome place in potpourris and linen sachets.
