Eucalyptus haemostoma is the lovely scribbly gum, featured in the May Gibbs Bib and Bub childrens books. It has a beautiful white or grey trunk with its intriguing insect-caused scribbles. It has thin ribbons of shedding bark as well. It grows in a wonderfully contorted, spreading shape to give a characteristically Australian tree. Has cream white flowers. Use it as a feature tree for an informal bush garden look. It needs very little maintenance. Naturally grows on Sydney sandstone soils, so needs a well drained soil.
