1x EUCALYPTUS GUM TREE (Eucalyptus glaucescens) also known as Tingiringi Gum
1ft TALL – a fast growing, interesting evergreen tree. Can be grown as a stand alone, coppiced or even used as hedging.
Eucalyptus attracts bees and other pollinating insects. Due to the high levels of essential oil in the leaves it is often not eaten by deer and rabbits.
The foliage has a cool grey / blue hue which contrasts nicely against the unusally patterned bark. The stems are often used in floral arranging and the leaves produce a beautiful and distinct scent when crushed.
