About the fact sheet
The Miena cider gum is a small- to medium-sized woodland tree which grows to between 12 and 15 metres tall, often with obvious forked (divaricate) branches. This species is part of a continuum between Eucalyptus gunnii and Eucalyptus archeri though it can be distinguished from the rest of the Eucalyptus gunnii-archeri complex by its smaller, broader leaves, the extent of the waxy covering, greater retention of juvenile foliage, greater underground root development and the absence of marked oil glands on the juvenile leaves.
