Eucalyptus leucoxylon, commonly known as Yellow Gum, Blue Gum or White Ironbark, is a species eucalypt that is endemic to Australia. It is widely distributed on plains and nearby mountain ranges or coastal South Australia, where it is known as the Blue Gum and extends into the western half of Victoria where it is known as the Yellow Gum.
Yellow Gum is a small to medium-sized tree with rough bark on the lower 1–2 m of the trunk, above this, the bark becomes smooth with a white, yellow or bluish-grey surface. Adult leaves are stalked, lanceolate to broad-lanceolate, to 13 x 2.5 cm, concolorous, dull, green. The white, pink or red flowers appear during winter. The leaves are distilled for the production of cineole based eucalyptus oil.
