Eucalyptus Socialis

Pointed Mallee

This is a mallee eucalypt growing to over 6m with multiple trunks. The white flowers grow in clusters at the end of a long stalk. The lanceolate leaves are a matt blue green and somewhat larger than those of other eucalypts in the region. Old bark forms a sock near the base but higher up peels away in strips leaving a whitish smooth covering. Buds have a long beaked cap ending in a point, while the fruits are globular with protruding valves.
