Eucalyptus Euky Dwarf

Eucalyptus Euky Dwarf

Eucalyptus Euky Dwarf Eucalyptus leucoxylon (dwarf selection) Euky Dwarf is perhaps the most popular small tree for gardens, streetscapes, freeways and parks across Australia, notching up more than 30 years since its introduction.  Why?   Because of its medium size (5-6 metre tall & 3-4 m wide), adaptability to a range of soils, and cold temperate, sub tropical and semi arid climates. It flowers from autumn right up to mid December. Red, pink or cream blossom  ~  it doesn’t matter to the numerous species of  honey-eating birds, either resident or migratory, who find this supply of nectar over such a long period irresistible; as have generations of gardeners who’ve chosen this bird magnet for their gardens.  Gardens without Euky Dwarf are only half done!   Download...
