Boland Yellow Gum is a small to medium-sized tree growing to about 20 m high. It has dark, rough-scaly bark at the base (rarely higher); the rest is smooth, grey, mottled yellow or white and bluish-grey, deciduous, shedding in oval patches above. The adult leaves are alternate, narrow to broadly lanceolate, 4-7 cm long 3-3.5 cm wide, stalked. The juvenile leaves are opposite, sessile and heart-shaped, pruinose (bluish green or grey) with a white surface wax. Flowers are whitish, borne in clusters of 3, each cluster on a drooping slightly flattened common stalk. Flowering winter (May) to summer (December). Buds are 1.2 cm long and 0.7 cm wide, the cap conical to beaked, as long or longer than the base. The fruit are ovoid, flattened on top, 1.7 cm long and 1.6 cm in diameter, on a slender short stalk, the valves deeply enclosed.


Restricted to several small areas between Barham and Euston. This species is not known from any protected area within NSW, though some remnants occur within State Forests along the Murray River, particularly within Campbells Island and Euston SFs.
