Eucalyptus 'Pulverulenta'

 

Gum Tree 'Pulverulenta'

Unmistakable in appearance, the Eucalyptus is commonly thought of as a tree with grey-green leaves, an open head, and often bark which, on trees of 5+ years, is shredded annually. However some species are in fact shrubs. Juvenile plants produce round or oval leaves, much used in flower arrangements. Older plants produce lance shaped leaves. Most species are tender however some can tolerate light frost and others, temperatures as low as -20C. All are thirsty plants, fast-growing, and aromatic. 'Pulverulenta' is a hardy species with stem-clasping oval leaves. Best kept as a stooled specimen.
