I'm pretty sure my dads got the same plant. If so then yes.

 

It doesn't have a little tag?

Little tags come with plants bought at a nursery...not branches from the park or elsewhere :D

Yes sorry Taylor, no tags - this comes from one of my hubby's foraging missions.

 

I am not sure about the leaves, they look a bit wide and dark green ....

Scrunch up the leaves and have a smell, you can usually smell if it has a strong eucalyptus smell or not.

that's what I was thinking twisted. lol.

When I go looking in the park , which by the way is totally against the law I scrunch and smell and then saw and hope no one sees me.

I have the same plant, and have given it to the birds. Does it have a kind of plastic sheen to it? topside only..

Yes. it is very glossy in the top side.

 

But I have decided not to risk it and hubby is off on another foraging mission determined to get 100% eucalyptus from now on. smile.gif

Precisely! wink.gif

 

Get it wrong and it just doesn't bear thinking about the consequences, does it? sad.gif

 

New branches have arrived and the birds were straight into them! smile.gif

Sorry, I couldn't see a hand holding it or something like that. I looked it up afterwards and yeah it wasn't a eucalyptus, but it was getting late and I forgot to post in the morning.

 

I think though I've given my birds that and no probs

I dunno. I was hoping someone would identify them and then if they were on the "safe list" I would have gone ahead and given them to my birds.

 

But no one did.

 

So I didn't.

Did the leaves smell really strongly? I have a gum tree that doesn't smell like an eucalypt at all - it has a super strong smell to it, and it looks exactly like those leaves and branches you've posted.
