White Box - native (Eucalyptus albens)
White Box grows to a large tree. It has a scattered occurrence localy e.g. north of Maldon, parts of Chewton, Expedition Pass and Muckleford Forest. White Box grows along a section of Odgers Road (near the Kangaroo sign).
It is similar to Grey Box. Disinguishing features include:
- the large, round, silvery juvenile leaves; these resemble those of Red Box, but are larger
- the finely fibrous grey bark
- the white-powdered buds and fruit. These are longer than those of Grey Box
- the broadish leaves which are greyer than those of most other local eucalypts.
