Description
Eucalyptus broviniensis is a small tree growing to 10m in height. The dull, granular bark is mottled light and dark grey, shedding to reveal new orange bark. The leaves are arranged alternately along the stems. Juvenile leaves are stalked, ovate in shape and 10cm long by 5cm wide. Adult leaves are lance-shaped and 10-14.5cm long by 2.5-4.5cm wide. They are on stalks 2-3cm long and are leathery, dull and the same colour on both sides.
The flower heads are unbranched and in clusters of seven, on stalks 8-22mm long. The mature buds are egg-shaped, 6-9mm long and 4.5-6.5mm in diameter. The seed capsules are conical in shape (attached by the narrow end), 5.5-8.5mm long and 7-11mm in diameter, with 3-4 protruding valves on the top. The seeds are ellipsoid to cube-shaped, 0.75-1mm long and not toothed. (Bean 2001)
