Australian Mountain Ash is known to attain heights over 100 metres. It is an evergreen and is the tallest of all flowering plants. It is also the tallest hardwood in the World!
No wonder I thought this was an ant's eye view......makes one feel like an ant looking up at the world.
I am a little confused....do not associate the two words ash and eucalyptus. Does it smell like a eucalyptus?
JF I haven't been able to find out why its called a Mountain "Ash" but it is definitely a eucalyptus and the leaves would have that distinctive smell ... if one can get up that high to find out!!! :).
Thanks for the educational info - you learn something new each day on Pano. Getting high enough to see/smell the leaves might be a bit of a problem :).
You can find leaves on smaller Eucalyptus trees as well, JF. If you rubbed the leaves, you would definitely smell eucalyptus.
Hi everybody, here in North Carolina, USA, you can buy dried eucalyptus for use in flower arranging and as craft supplies.
Norrel, you don't even have to rub it to release the odor. People love to use the eucalyptus in crafty looking wreaths and hang it at their entrances so the scent refreshes as someone passes by and makes the house smell so good. It is a powerful scent... if you put your nose right over the leaf and inhale deeply, you can get your sinuses cleaned as well.
It's a swell photo, M!
Mira it would take 3 or 4 people holding hands and banding around it.
Thanks Jean what a fountain of knowledge you have!. Love it. :)
Great view :-)
