Ghost Gum
GHOST GUM
Corymbia papuana (=Eucalyptus)

Ghost Gum is a MAGNIFICENT substitute for Red Gum (E. camaldulensis) or other upright weaker eucalyptus species. Like it's relational brother coolibah ( E. microtheca), ghost gum adapts very well to urban sites in lower deserts. Ghost Gum has a powdery white trunk with large, light green lance-shaped leaves.
