Spotted gum, South Rosedale


My favourite tree.
It says on this website:
"From 1844 until recently Spotted Gum was known as Eucalyptus maculata, but after years of discussion and argument botanists finally agreed to change the name to Corymbia maculata. Along with a few other closely related trees in the Bloodwood group, Spotted Gum was separated from the Eucalypts and put into their own genus."
