This is a mallee eucalypt growing to over 6m with multiple trunks. The lanceolate leaves are a glossy deep green sometimes with red margins. Old bark forms a sock near the base but higher up peels away leaving a whitish smooth covering. Buds have a short conical cap, while the fruits are cup-shaped and have enclosed valves.
