Plant details

One of the hardiest of the eucalyptus, it has beautifully patterned white bark and large leaves. In summer, white flower clusters appear amid glossy, grey-green foliage. Its tolerance of salt winds makes it a useful plant for coastal areas. They are naturally trees, sometimes reaching a great height, but in gardens annual pruning can maintain them as large shrubs, keeping a supply of the juvenile foliage enjoyed by gardeners and flower arrangers. However for the best bark effects, they should be left to grow as trees.
