Eucalyptus erythronema marginata. RED-FLOWERED MALLEE. Western Australia
MYRTACEAE (Myrtle family)

One of the most attractive of the mallees, both for the almost white, smooth bark on the multiple divergent stems and for the striking red flowers. The buds and fruit are interesting to look at, too. A fine specimen with many trunks is on the west side of Campus Drive East half way between Serra Street and Escondido Road (identified on Ron Bracewell's Eucalyptus Walk and in bloom 10/28/04) and another is on Campus Drive East 45 yards from Bonair Siding walking toward the Police Station.
