Family Myrtaceae
Originating from S.E. Australia

Vigorous, narrow, upright, evergreen tree with smooth, pink/brown bark, peeling to reveal a patchwork of creamy white bark beneath. The juvenile leaves are round and glaucous, followed by bright green sickle-shaped adult foliage, copper tinted when young. White flowers in summer are not particularly showy but are attractive to bees and make excellent honey.
Very fast growing and a young plant can grow 2.5m in its first year in the ground.
Grow in moist but well-drained soil in sun. Will tolerate dry sandy and chalky soil.
Eucalyptus grow incredibly rapidly and they should be planted in full sun.
