Short Notes
BRI 214640, 214641
Eucalyptus hallii is a tree growing to 17m in height. It has smooth bark on the trunk and branchlets. The bark is mottled grey and dark grey and is continually shed. The newly exposed bark is orange to pinkish-grey. The juvenile leaves are lance shaped to ovate, measure 15cm long by 8cm wide and are arranged in pairs along the branches. Adult leaves are the same colour on either side; a glossy green or grey-green. They are lance-shaped or sometimes sickle-shaped and measure up to 15cm long by 2.5cm wide.
Up to 7 white flowers are grouped into clusters, on laterally flattened stalks that reach up to 1cm in length. The flower clusters arise from the angle between the leaf and the stem. Mature flower buds are egg-shaped, have a rounded or cone-shaped cap, measure up to 9mm long by 4mm wide and are without a stalk. The seed capsules are conical with the pointed end joined to the stalk and have 3-4 chambers and protruding valves. The capsules are 5-8mm long and 5-7mm in diameter.
