Eucalyptus Pleurocarpa, also referred to as Tallerack.
Eucalyptus: (Greek) Eu – well, and calyptos – covered; referring to the operculum or cap which covers the stamens in bud.
Pleurocarpa: (Greek) pleura – rib or side, and carpos – fruit; referring to its ribbed or four-sided fruit.
I felt inspired to create this artwork to acknowledge National Eucalypt Day and was drawn to this species by its unique four-sided fruit and leaf tones.
