Eucalyptus petrensis

Eucalyptus petrensis 1

We also noticed this Eucalyptus petrensis flowering in Bold Park recently. It is a straggling mallee and is sometimes called Rock Mallee.

The flowers die to produce this fruit with a distinctive spike in the centre.

The older fruit, presumably from last year, have turned into dry, wooden seed pods.
