Faulconbridge mallee ash
Description: A rare mallee type shrub, found in a restricted area of the Blue Mountains of New South Wales. The bark picture above was taken at Mt. Tomah botanic garden outside of Sydney. Obviously, with my foliage picture above, I have a long wait! The bark on the species is smooth gray, new bark is orange to tan in color, very pretty!
Culture: Loam or sandy loam soil, pH 5.5 to 6.4, low rainfall
Uses: Ornamental, attractive bark.
