Australian gum trees are Eucalypts. They are evergreens, well suited to Australia's climate and conditions and include the world's tallest flowering plants (the swamp gum, or Australian mountain ash - Eucalyptus regnans, family Myrtaceae). Gum leaves are well suited to a dry, hot climate and on the same tree one may find different coloured leaves in different stages of development or decline.

This post is part of the Wordless Wednesday meme,
and also part of the My Corner of the World meme,
and also part of the Nature Notes meme.


  1. Lovely photo of all the stages of gum tree leaves. The entire tree must look rather colorful.

  2. And Koalas tend to go with them too.

  3. That is really cool to see on the same tree!

    Thanks for sharing your link at My Corner of the World this week!

  4. Oh they are evergreens.....Not like any here....
