Eucalyptus scoparia, commonly known as the Wallangarra White Gum or Willow Gum is a medium sized lignotuberous Eucalyptus with smooth, white with light grey patched bark with a powdery coating that grows to some 15m in height and 10m in width. 
In the wild it is confined to a few granite rocky mountains in the Great Dividing Range in the vicinity of Wallangarra near the border with New South Wales and Queensland and a bit further south near Tenterfield.  Eucalyptus scoparia is closely related to the Eucalyptus mannifera and has smooth white powdery bark but differs from that species and other White Gums by having narrow, glossy green adult and juvenile leaves. 
It is not a common tree in the wild where it is listed as vulnerable, but it is quite widely cultivated.
It has a slender, solitary trunk with attractive powdery white bark and an attractive spreading crown, foliage is willow-like, 10 to 15cm in length with the juvenile foliage a glossy green maturing to a shiny mid-green and it is highly aromatic when crushed. 
The small twigs are an attractive deep red.
Flowers to 1.5cm are creamy white and occur in early to mid Summer. 
This is a graceful, stately tree that has been used to good effect as a medium-sized street tree in cooler locations such as Canberra and gives wonderful dappled shade, is frost hardy (in Australia to -7°C) and drought hardy.
Eucalyptus scoparia is tolerant of a wide range of soils and is best in well-drained gravely soils but grows well in heavier and compacted soils.
