Australian swamps, lakes and waterway, in their natural state, are lined with trees, sedges and rushes.
The trees are normally melaluecas. They just love getting their feet wet.
Noted for their antiseptic, antibacterial and cleansing oil, these trees have another, more important use.
Their bark makes a great lining for hanging baskets. You can pull great strips of it off, not harming the tree at all.
As can be seen from this final image, they are normally called “Paperbarks”.
The bark can be stripped from itself into thinner and thinner layers, just like a ream of paper.
