Hardy Eucalyptus Tree | Eucalyptus gunnii

Adds winter interest to your garden

The Highlights

    • Evergreen grey/green leaves and silvery-green bark makes this a perfect choice to add winter interest to your garden
    • Creamy white flowers in the summer attract bees
    • Aromatic slender elliptical shaped leaves that look beautiful all year round
    • Commonly known as the Tasmanian Cider Tree
    • Low maintenance and fully hardy
    • Grows up to 25 x 12m but can be pruned as a small tree or shrub
    • Our potted trees are supplied in EcoPots™. Eco pots use 70% less plastic and are fully recyclable, unlike normal single use pots. They flex and so produce less root spiralling and travel better in the post.MORE
    • Our trees are usually between 18 and 36 months old at the time of dispatch.
    • Our trees are professionally pruned before dispatching. This formative pruning can involve cutting the main leader, if the expert tree growers decide this will produce a better shaped tree. This can stop the tree becoming "leggy", and promote stronger, bushier growth.MORE
