HARDY EUCALYPTUS SPECIES
COMMON NAME TO BOTANICAL NAME CROSS-REFERENCE

The hardy Eucalyptus species index lists each species by its botanical, or scientific name.  I have chosen to arrange them this way because a single species may have a multitude of common names, and several species may also share the same common name.  This is especially true of the genus Eucalyptus; and, in a genus of over 800 named species and subspecies, it is important that finding reference to one be as easy and straightforward as possible.  Hence the necessity of scientific names.

I do, however, think that common names are worth knowing in the case of eucalypts.  Although they should not be relied upon too heavily, they do have the advantage of being wonderfully descriptive - far more so than the common names of most other plants.  Such names as "Shiny-leaved Peppermint" and "Blue Mountains Mallee Ash" tell much more about a plant than you usually get in a common name.  Therefore I have tried to find every common name I am aware of for each species of Eucalyptus listed in the index - I hope that it will give the reader a better feel for what the tree is like.

The following cross-reference attempts to cover all common names of Eucalyptus species listed in the hardy Eucalyptus species index.  If you cannot find the common name you are looking for in the list below, either it is not a hardy species, and therefore not listed in the index, or it is erroneus, or I do not know about it, which is entirely possible.  In addition to attempting to cover every common name for every species listed in the index, I have tried to list the species that each common name is most likely to refer to first in order.  Also, species with long common names that include collective names such as "stringybark" or "peppermint" may be listed separately under various parts of their name.  "Wattle-leaved Peppermint," for example, may be found under "Wattle-leaved" or "Peppermint" as a sub-heading.  (However, such names as "Kybean Mallee Ash," which contain more than one common collective name, will only be found under the last of these names - in this case, "Ash" or "Mallee Ash" but not "Mallee.")  The only word excluded from this procedure is "gum" - there are simply too many; and, in fact, Eucalyptus trees are often collectively called "gum trees" as a whole genus.
