Eucalyptus gunnii / Gum tree
Eucalyptus are large evergreen trees, native to Australia and New Zealand. From their beautiful bark to their blue-green foliage - not to mention the fabulous aroma of their leaves and seeds - they have much to offer. They are fast-growing and do require space, making them suitable for the larger garden. If space is limited, they can be cut down to ground level on a regular basis, meaning you have a supply of juvenile foliage (the leaves are round when young ) that is popular with flower arrangers. Plant in most soil types, preferably in sun. They can grow very fast in their early years, so cutting them down by half after 1 to 2 years will encourage sturdier, more resilient plants.
Irish-grown plants, 150-175cm in height, in 5 litre containers.
