Obviously, the smoothed skinned Ghost Gums, which are still called and considered eucalyptus by many Aussies are one of the best options with their glossing dark green leaves, and ever at their most brilliant in the full moon light. Spotted Gums of the same genus are also useful, particularly the outer layer of bark that forms the spots of their moniker. The classic example in this current is of course the Tasmanian Blue Gum (Eucalyptus globulus) for its fragrant leaves, and the distinctive blue mist that hangs over their forests. For myself, I prefer the wood, bark, and leaves of these for Jupiterian work, and for this current, would also use the creamy white flowers of any of the larger broad leaf species referred to as ‘Blue Gums’ of the Eastern States.
