Eucalyptus Wandoo

Two endemic Western Australian trees I really admire are Eucalyptus Salubris (Gimlet) and Eucalyptus Wandoo. Hard to believe that Wandoo is under threat, but there are good stands remaining just out of Perth. A beautiful tree with amazing bark, even more so after rain when it goes almost blood red. The attached photo in full colour format is part of our first batch to a new exclusive library in the UK dealing with flora images. Been a busy month getting the first 50 ready for them.
