Thanks you Phil, George and Gus !
There is many trunks because it is a resprout. After wind-storm, frost, or car accident ? I don't know.
Saint RaphaŽl is near the France south-eastern corner frost-less. There is some Orange Blossom and Limon in Saint RaphaŽl gardens.
I haven't the good name ...
Sorry Phil, it looks a little like E. camphora. But flowers are in terminal panicles.
George and Gus, I think you are the best.
My first idea is E. polyanthemos, and the sub-specie may be vestita.
It is not E. polyanthemos subsp. longior, leaves are not lanceolate.
It is not E. polyanthemos subsp. polyanthemos, bark is rough to the branches (not the small).
It may be E. polyanthemos subsp. vestita or E. baueriana.
In Eucalypts of Victoria and Tasmania DEAN NICOLLE write : "Eucalyptus baueriana is closely related to E. polyanthemos, differing from the latter in the consistently rounded, seasonally glossy and green adult leaves (rounded to lanceolate and dull and blue-green in E. polyanthemos) and the consistently obconical fruits (barrel-shaped to obconical in E. polyanthemos)."
Leaves are like E. polyanthemos. But fruits, with very short pedicels and obconical form, look more like E. baueriana ...
