Spinning Gum (Pr Pkt) җ җ җ

Eucalyptus perinniana is known as the spinning gum because of the juvenile foliage that encircles the stems. As the tree ages they dry up and break free from the growth point still encircling the stem and “spin” in the wind hence the name. I prefer the adult foliage with long scythe shaped leaves hanging attractively on the branches. The bark of the main trunk has more of a mottled cinnamon colour rather than silver or grey. One extra benefit is the sweet scent when in flower, like burnt cinnamon, that permeates the garden and the bees just love it.
