Additional information

Eucalyptus 'Torwood' is a spontaneous hybrid or Eucalyptus torquata and Eucalyptus woodwardii. Its name is derived from the species names of these progenitors. Different individuals of this species show a combination of the characteristics of the two sources with more or less dominance of one or the other.
This is not a tall tree with broad canopy and smooth bark. Leaf color ranges from deep green to gray.
The flower buds resemble those of Eucalyptus torquata with a cylindrical basis and along and curved operculum with a broad angular basis.
The color of the flowers is a combination of the red flowers of Eucalyptus torquata nd the yellow ones of Eucalyptus woodwardii. Thier color ranges from orange to yellow. The flowers produce large amounts of pollen and nectar. This is the reason that this species is a preferred honey tree planted for this purpose in various parts of Australia n doter countries including Israel.
