Eucalyptus sideroxylon. RED IRONBARK. Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland
As the tree ages the bark becomes perfused with kino that
oxidizes to black and cements a rough, fissured bark
MYRTACEAE (Myrtle family)
In 1968 there were 103 young ironbarks on Panama Street. Some were lost to accidents as time passed but by 2002 supplementary planting had brought the total back to 83. The shady avenue of dark trunks and red flowers adds a pleasant unifying touch to an architecturally challenged neighborhood.
