Australian original

Eucalyptus

Eucalyptus form the tree on the roof

I love small vases, love the smell of Eucalyptus and sometimes really like a bouquet without the flowers, just the leaves.

Eucalyptus was introduced from Australia to the rest of the world following the Cook expedition in 1770. Collected by Sir Joseph Banks, botanist on the expedition. The leaves are poisonous, but koala’s can tolerate them, they have the stomach for it.
