Originating from Tasmania
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.
