Eucalyptus salubris. GIMLET. Western Australia
MYRTACEAE (Myrtle family)
A very attractive specimen is on Raimundo Way on the rise opposite Wing Place, and there is another at the east end of Esplanada Way near the Chinese tallow trees. The bark is smooth, has a sheen, and is a light warm color. The leaves are more than 10 times longer than their 3/8 inch width, which gives the canopy a special appearance. Compare with the dark-barked, narrow-leaved peppermints E. nicholii nearby. The ripe flower buds have a cylindrical calyx tube (less than 1/4 inch in diameter and twice as long) that narrows slightly at its upper end, where there is a darker ring; the conical operculum is about as long as the calyx tube. The bud shape sets this tree off from the other campus eucalypts.
