Fuchsia Gum

Fuchsia Gum 3

We saw this Fuchsia Gum (Eucalyptus forrestiana) growing beside the Great Southern Highway as we were driving to Albany last week. It has amazing flowers and fruit.

However this striking eucalypt is actually native to the Esperance area, so the one we saw must have been planted.
