Eucryphia lucida (Labill.) Baill. - Cunoniaceae - Tasmanian Leatherwood, Tasmanische Scheinulme

„Eucryphia lucida, or Leatherwood as it is commonly called, is a medium-sized tree with a compact crown of glossy green leaves. This cool temperate rainforest tree produces masses of white, showy flowers that have a honey scent. It is an endemic Tasmanian cool temperate rainforest tree that occurs in moss forests in the wetter areas of Tasmania's western side. It co-occurs with Myrtle Beech (Nothofagus cunninghamii), Southern Sassafras (Atherosperma moschatum) and Blackwood (Acacia melanoxylon).“

„A plant thats name is probably better known for a by product than the plant itself, Eucryphia lucida is commonly known as Tasmanian leatherwood. Although Eucryphia species are found both in Australia and South America it is the Australian species that are widely used in landscaping. Best known of all is the Tasmanian Leatherwood, these are the trees that give their name to the honey.“

„Appearing in spring and summer, the 2.5-4 cm diameter white flowers have four petals and resemble small single roses and have a strong fragrance, especially on warmer days.“
