Eucalyptus viminalis subsp. cygnetensis

When work began on the present site of Warrnambool Botanic Gardens in 1866 the land was heavily timbered. Remnant vegetation is still there with three old Manna Gums, Eucalyptus viminalis and a Sweet Bursaria, Bursaria spinosa surviving.

The old gums provide nesting hollows for the birds, while one is host to a hive of native bees.  Recently plants grown from the seed of these original trees and shrubs have been added to the collection.
