I love it, is the bark always like that or different depending on season? I have just planted a slow gum tree, I fell in love with it's bark and I've fallen in love yet again :)

Hello Littledove,
Yes the bark is always peeling but more marked at this time of year,a great feature in the garden before other plants have come into growth.It is a slow growing tree,mine is about 8 years old and is 8ft tall,and reaches 30ft.
