Eucalyptus Dry White
Eucalyptus elata dwarf form
Small gardens call for small shade & shelter trees and Eucalyptus Dry White is the perfect choice at 5-8 metres tall & only 3-5 metres spread. Add the other benefits: fine trunk, smooth bark, highly perfumed silky foliage with pink new growth, a softly weeping habit which allows winter light to penetrate, a long bud-set anticipation period and masses of clustered white flowers in late winter, and you have the perfect package. A second flowering can occur in summer, and the honey-eating birds will be around for a feed in a trice. Grows in climates from cool temperate to sub tropical and semi arid in well drained clay loam soils of a neutral to acid nature, both inland with frost or near-coastal sites.
