Tuart

Tuart 1

Tuart trees (Eucalyptus gomphocephala) are fairly common in coastal areas of Western Australia from about Guilderton to Busselton, and you will them growing in both Kings Park and Bold Park in Perth.

The trees grow up to 40m in height and flower from Jan to April. We saw our first Tuart flower for this season a few days back at Minim Cove in Perth. The flower buds look amusingly like miniature green ice creams.
