It is also known as Mottlecah or "Rose of the West" here in Western Australia, where it is endemic.

I haven't seen one with a trunk, as far as I can remember. They generally grow in an untidy multi-stemmed shrubby sort of habit. They are quite striking in the bush - they have bigger, more silvery leaves than most eucalypts.
