Spotted Gum
Spotted Gum

First described by Stan Blake in 1977. Corymbia henryi has generally larger and coarser leaves and bigger buds than the other two core forms of Spotted Gum- Corymbia citriodora and Corymbia maculata.

It is a medium to large tree to 30m, fast growing, found on relatively infertile soils from the Brisbane area, to south of Grafton in New South Wales. Found in moister sites along drainage lines. The bark is smooth throughout and is dull or glossy, white to grey or red-brown or pink or cream and can be mottled or dimpled.

The broad leaves alternate to almost opposite, green above, and can grow up to 12 inches long and are slightly paler below. Seedling and juvenile leaves with stiff hairs, larger than adult leaves. Whitish flowers in groups of 3 in racemes or panicles December-February.
