Bark lasts long on the coloured trunk, causing the strain after a while to start looking like a candle. Originally grew in the southeast of Tasmania.

Family: Myrtaceae
Scientific name: Eucalyptus rubida
Common name: Candlebark Gum
Origin: Southeastern Australia

This Eucalyptus species is called the Candlebark Gum, because the bark does not come directly from the tree when it dies off, so that the trunk gets a battered appearance. This is similar to a burning candle. The yellow-white and grey trunk has orange-red stripes during the summer, making it quite graceful. 

It is a species with origins in Southeast Tasmania, and can nowadays be found in many places in southeastern Australia. The species is hardy.

Kiem heel goed! Na een week de eeste plantjes. Gewoon in de huiskamer kiemen, met folie over het potje werkt prima :)

Zaden gezaaid zoals voorgeschreven in zaai en stekgrond, in een propagator geplaatst op 30 graden zonder licht en alle zaden na 4 dagen ontkiemt :)
