Notes : Angophora is a genus of the large Myrtaceae family. It consists often species, all native to Eastern Australia. They look similar to Eucalypts and are often mistaken as such by unaware people. The bark of this tree, as the name suggests, looks rough and varied in colours. The flowering is cream coloured, made of soft large inflorescence. The secondary branches of this species are often twisted, in a very peculiar way. Angophoras are commonly called Apple because the growth habit of some species appears similar to that of Apple trees.
