    Winter-flowering eucalypts in eastern Australia tend to have white flowers, relying on insects and mammals for pollination. The Blue-leaved stringy bark (E. agglomerata), narrow-leaved red ironbark (E. crebra) and the misshapen Tumbledown gum (E. dealbata). More colourful counterparts includes the mugga, or red ironbark (E. sideroxylon), with dark, furrowed bark and bright red, pink or white flowers (northern Victoria through to Queensland) and the South Australian cup gum ('E. cosmophylla'). 

    Other iconic species are the blue gum (E. leucoxylon), with white, pink or red flowers. The summer to autumn-flowering Pink gum (E. fasciculosa), South Australian mallee box (E. porosa) or the narrow-leaved red mallee (E. leptophylla) might still be showing some colour.
