Eucalyptus nicholii. WILLOW-LEAVED PEPPERMINT. New South Wales
MYRTACEAE (Myrtle family)

A well-behaved small tree that does not drop its dark, matted bark, and drops only tiny fruit. The short, narrow leaves, which have a distinctive aroma, disappear into ground cover. There are five specimens on Raimundo Way opposite Cottrell Way, and other young ones on Campus Drive East fronting the Taube Tennis Center, and one on the Peter Coutts embankment (south side) between Stanford Avenue and Raimundo Way. For nearby mature trees go to 550 Oxford Street at Staunton Street, Palo Alto. Young trees recently were planted along the north side of Green Library’s Bing Wing.

Two young trees in Bonair Siding parking lot near E. pellita: UTM 10S 0574428 4142601

Illus. right: Tiny fruits, axillary, simple 7-flowered umbels (only three remain here).
