These gum trees often grow past 30 metres in height given the opportunity. They are endemic to the eastern side of Australia.
Bark colour is normally grey with blue or pink hue to it and is typically smooth to touch.
Flowering occurs from late-autumn through to spring in Australia and this tree produces white flowers in small clusters.
The name maculata was given by William Jackson Hooker in 1844, referring to the spotted pattern on the bark.
This native prefers the full sun with good drainage. It does not grow well in frost conditions.
