Corymbia intermedia syn. Eucalyptus
(This plant is not on the Australian Noxious Weed List.)
The Bloodwoods were once placed in the genus Eucalyptus but DNA research has found they should be separated and placed in a genera of their own – what was Eucalyptus is now Corymbia, at least for the Bloodwoods.
The Pink Bloodwood (named after the timber colouration) has a very broad habitat extending from
Gloucester in New South Wales northwards to Cape York Peninsula, a distance of 2500 km (1600 miles)
and within 100 km (60 miles) of the eastern coast.
A medium to tall tree 20-30 m. (65 – 100 ft) with a spread of 10 – 20 metres, it prefers sandy or loam soils and predominant summer rainfall to 2200 mm in open forest or rainforest margins.
The bark is tesselated (splits into squares like tiles) , light brown or grey in colour, and extends from the trunk to the branches. Leaves are dark green and concolorous (lighter on the underside), flowers are profuse, white or cream, perfumed, up to 2 cm in diameter and grouped in sevens to form the inflorescence.
The Pink Bloodwood is a favourite of the Squirrel Glider and Yellow-bellied Glider which bite the bark and lick the sap from the wound. They also feed on the nectar from the flowers.
