Swamp Bloodwood, northern Queensland Australia  (credit: SWP Media)

 

A celebration of plants and their vital roles ranging for oxygen production, environmental stability, and beauty in wild and planted landscapes everywhere, our Journal offers an occasional series of photographic essays on botanical treasures. We will select plants that may be familiar or not well known but always worth learning about.

Here is an exceptional example from northern Australia, the Swamp Bloodwood (Corymbia ptychocarpa). Corymbia is one of the 3 genera commonly referred to as the Eucalypts, the continent's famous Gum Trees. Eucalypts range in scale from large redwood sized species to small ground covering shrubs. They and are found growing in every environment on the island continent. Eucalypts are now planted worldwide from temperate to semi-arid landscapes for commercial to decorative purposes.
