Found this awesome shot (not mine), wondering what the heck it is.. Anyone?
Looks like a Eucalyptus of some sort. (or something closely related)
Well, I was hoping someone would critic my id suggestion.....
It is also known as Mottlecah or "Rose of the West" here in Western Australia, where it is endemic.
It's quite a bold, striking plant from what I recall. grlwonder - have you seen them with a trunk?
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.
