Eucalyptus leucoxylon spp pruinosa is a medium-sized tree growing up to 10 - 20 metres tall. The base of the tree appears fibrous giving way to smooth mottled white-grey bark developing an open canopy.
This species occurs over a wide natural range in South Eastern Australia and is often mistaken for river red gum. It can be easily distinguished as it has larger urn-shaped fruit capsules about 1cm across. It also occurs on ridges and hilly undulating areas in higher rainfall areas.
Eucalyptus leucoxylon ssp pruinosa flowers during autumn and winter, can be red, pink or red but almost always white. This species may have been originally described as Eucalyptus leucoxylon var leucoxylon.
