Eucalyptus diversifolia, commonly known as the soap mallee, South Australian coastal mallee[1] or the coastal white mallee,[2] is a eucalypt that is native to an area along the southern coast of Australia.[3]

The mallee typically grows to a height of 0.5 to 8 metres (2 to 26 ft) and has smooth bark. The tree blooms between July and September or Desember to January and produces white to cream-yellow flowers.[3]

The range of the mallee extends from the coastal area of the Goldfields-Esperance region in Western Australia through the south coast of South Australia and as far east as the south west of Victoria.[4]
