Originating from Australia.
An absolute showstopper of a Eucalyptus with multi-coloured peeling bark, red young stems, big leathery silver and then green leaves, white flowers, aromatically sweetly fresh, and it’s the hardiest of them all once established. It is an adaptable species too, responding well to pruning to keep it to the size of a large shrub or small tree. It’s not the fastest grower, only making about 1m of growth a year once established, so is manageable and can be planted in any garden with confidence. Easy to grow in full sun in all but alkaline, thin chalky soil.
Height and spread after 20-30 years if not pruned 10m x 4m.
