Trees of London |
Britain is about as cold a country as this tree can stand, and there are countries a lot colder than Britain, as it cannot really survive if temperatures go below -10C. It is a native of the more temperate parts of Australia but, unlike the gum tree, it does not look out of place in the London parks. Perhaps surprisingly, it is Australia's national tree.
Its leaves, which are a bit fernlike, are often used as cuttings to adorn flower bouquets.
