Bookleaf Mallee (Eucalyptus kruseana)

Bookleaf Mallee Eucalyptus kruseana

This eucalyptus tree is small compared to others, usually not getting past 3m in height and the width is similar, without pruning.


Leaves are a rounded pale green, sessile and opposite each other. The common name of Bookleaf mallee describes the leaves lining up on the branch, almost like books on a bookshelf.


Yellow flowers typically appear in the winter months, in groups of 7 along the branches.


Originally found around the granite hills near Kalgoorlie in the south east of Western Australia, this mallee prefers a sunny position with well drained soil.
