Eucalyptus is a Greek word and means "well covered" referring to the lid-like cover of the bud.
Baron von Muller, a German botanist, who in 1873, was the director of the Botanical Gardens in Melbourne, was the first to suggest that the leaves of eucalyptus might be useful as a disinfectant. Due to eucalyptus’s heavy water requirements, it was frequently planted in marshy areas, which made it extremely useful in preventing the malarial fever epidemics common in swampy ares.
