Australian Ghost Gum was originally introduced to match the soft whites found in the trunks of the ghostly trees that are common in the semi-arid parts of Australia. Many landscape artists have found it an ideal white when working with landscape because so many of the very light colors are naturally muted. Just as dark shadows have a lot of color in them so do the natural whites. In nature colors tend to be muted and are rarely strident. Because Australian Ghost Gum has a subdued ochre based character it works well with the restrained colors of the natural landscape.
