Features

notes

A native of Tasmania, Eucalyptus gunnii Azure is a highly decorative evergreen tree that remains attractive throughout the year. An excellent backdrop in the garden, the glaucous leaves, perfectly paired on straight, wiry stems, start rounded but become lance-shaped as the tree matures. These stems are particularly valued by flower arrangers.

Insights

In Tasmania it is known as a Cider Gum or Cider Tree because originally the sap was turned into a cheering drink called wayalinah. The essential oil extracted from its leaves has medicinal uses.

Details

Flowers: Small, fluffy white flowers on mature trees from mid-summer to autumn

Care
