Eucalyptus gunnii

Eucalyptus gunnii

Cider Gum


SKU: 98206194


Family Myrtaceae
Originating from Tasmania

  • Stunning evergreen silver leaves are round and grow densely, oval grey green glossy adult foliage is borne on an open crown.
  • Aromatic leaves are complemented by white flowers in summer.
  • Hardy and easy to grow forming a large tree, or as a hedge, or small tree if pruned.

Grow as a shrub, or hedge with stunning, silver/blue juvenile rounded foliage, or as a small or large tree with adult grey/green leaves. This versatile and hardy eucalypt is a must-have for so many roles in gardens and in different styles too. It is tough enough to grow in coastal exposure as a windbreak, and ornamental enough to make a specimen tree with peeling cream-coloured patchwork bark. If coppiced or pollarded it will re-grow vigorously producing its aromatic regrowth, prized in floristry. Easy to grow in any soil in full sun or in large pots if trimmed.

Height and spread after 15 – 20 years if not pruned 12m x 8m.
