Eucalyptus platypus
Round-leaved Moort

Uses: Ornamental small Eucalypt with pretty soft creamy yellow flowers in Spring and Summer. It has smooth grey bark that comes off in strips in Summer and Autumn to reveal new pinkish growth. The plant's dense habit makes it useful tree as a windbreak.
Responds well to pruning and coppicing.
Can be vulnerable to splitting so care should be taken when choosing a location.
The flowers are bee attracting.
