It’s the most widespread species of Eucalypts in Australia and one of the best known and most valuable of our timber trees.
A tall tree, growing over 35 meters, As its names suggests, it grows along river banks and watercourses or on flood plains and is found over most of the Australian mainland.
The tree blossoms every second year, usually the same year as Yellow Box, and concurrently with it, from December to January. The bloom does not last long on a tree, and there is not much variation in time between different trees. The flowers are usually in clusters of 4 to 14.
River Red Gum Honey
Red Gum also produces pollen in great quantities, and is therefore exceedingly valuable in Yellow Box country, as the pollen not only keeps the bees going in brood rearing, but also enables them to collect a good store for a time of scarcity. The secretion of nectar is often very strong – it is in fact one of the heaviest nectar yielders.
Red Gum honey is of a clear golden color, not quite as dense as from Yellow Box, less aromatic, but of a milder and very smooth flavor. It crystallizes quickly and sets very hard.
