 Eucalyptus spathulata or swamp mallet is medium sized tree from the southern wheatbelt region of Western Australia. Swamp mallet has been planted extensively over many decades in the Eastern States particularly in drier areas. Swamp mallet, as the name suggests, will tolerate extended periodic inundation and salt affected soil conditions.


Eucalyptus spathulata is a particularly attractive tree with fine grey 'soft foliage' and distinctive smooth grey brown bark. It is usually single stemmed in cultivation but may also develop in a multi-stemmed 'mallet' form


Originating from the south-west of Western Australia, this small, evergreen tree tolerates the toughest and most difficult garden sites. It is fast growing and has a useful rounded shape and attractive flakey-orange bark. It is also a great tree for children; for climbing and the interesting buds, flowers, and fruits. This plant is a food source and nesting site for birds.
