Did you know that California grows more Eucalytus species and trees than anywhere in the World outside of Australia? I hope that made sense. LOL!

I've only learnt that as a result of your info Delonix - that is fascinating to me. Obviously they love the climate there.

One cannot drive anywhere at the lower elevations of CA. without seeing Eucalytus naturalizing everywhere...they are the most non-native tree grown
in California as far as I know.

I'll go as far to say that many people think it's a native tree...and equate it with California, because Eucalytus has been grown here for so long.

Yes, it's interesting...in most of my photos you'll see Eucalytus trees in the background.
