Smooth Barked Apple


Angophora Costata, “Smooth Barked Apple”

The Smooth Barked Apple is an attractive Australian native tree, best loved for its peeling salmon pink to pale grey bark. Foliage is curved and waxy with older green leaves contrasting with red new growth on twisted upper branches. Small white flowers are borne in mass in Spring, leading to small gum nuts that are not problematic for lawnmowers.

The Rose Gum/Smooth Barked Apple is a stately shade tree, commonly planted in parks, avenues and used in mass plantings.  Very useful for sandy, dry areas.
