Getting Started This Eucalyptus is rare in nature but one of the most consistent and fastest growing of all the Southern Eucs. In McDonough, GA we have an outlier that reached 30’ from seed in three years.
Size Easy to control and responds well to pruning. All grown up 'Grace' could reach 40’.
Leaf New growth is a delicate pink. Elongated fruit scented leaves emerge from stems that take on striking burgundy and purples in fall and winter.
Trunk & Bark Trunk is very straight and uniform. Even in young trees, the bark is a striking smooth powdery-white and sheds to reveal colorful yellow, grey, and orange patches.
Flower Small white flowers.
Exposure Full sun
Soil Type All types
Container Plant? Graceful nature makes it a great choice for a deck, porch, or patio.
