Manna Gum Flower Essences
The Manna Gum (or Ribbon Eucalyptus, a local name) is very tall and can grow up to 50 metres high. Its trunk can reach a diameter of 1.5 metres. You’ll find Manna Gum in moist locations, near watercourses in Tasmania, the East Coast—from Victoria to Queensland and parts of South Australia. This Eucalyptus grows in altitudes up to 1,400 metres. Koalas love Manna Eucalyptus leaves.
Manna Gum gets its name from the manna it produces. Manna develops on the leaves only after an insect injures it. At the point of injury, a pea-sized spot appears where the manna develops. Doctor Cunningham researched manna in 1827. He said that it is the most effective, safe and probably the only good tasting laxative. The alternative name, Ribbon Gum, comes from long ribbons of bark, which peel off the trunk and hang off its branches in summer.
The white flowers are about 2 cm in diameter and grow in clusters of three to seven blossoms. This tree can flower all year round, but blooms mainly in summer.
