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.
