The White Mallee is native of a relatively dry region in Southern Australia. It is smaller than the typical Eucalypts and often presents itself in an almost shrubby form, often clustered in formations of 2-3 individuals growing next to each other. It forms a sparse scrubland in the dry plains of Southern Australia. The flowering takes place from late Summer to mid Autumn. The leaves are steam distilled as a commercial source of Eucalyptus Oil.
