Day 56/366

Angophora Costata (Smooth-barked Apple)
From the Greek meaning vessel or goblet (angophora), and ribbed (costata) taken from the shape of the seed pods.

This tree is,
in my opinion, the most majestic tree in the Blue Mountains.
She is a member of the Myrtaceae family, and therefore at risk of being affected by 

The Angophora has the ability to change the colour of its bark by the hour, depending on the weather and the time of day.

The colour of the Angophora bark can range from grey to blue-grey to pink to salmon to terracotta.

Once the tree sheds its bark, it is left with a satin smooth trunk.

Angophora Costata grows to a height of 15-25 metres.
